Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Lots of current but still a 12-15 fish average per person

Well, September is starting off looking like spring, which is nice. August finished much as it started, a mixture of some good and a fair bit notso.

The fish have'nt moved into the shallower anywhere near as early as last year, and though the fishing's a bit slower deep than it was, it's still better and more consistent than in close.

We had a midweek trip in the 60/80m, with tallies mainly around the 12/15 mark, still a mixture of snapper and tarakihi, so a bit slower On Saturday we started close because of an ominous forecast 25/30kn SE, but headed deeper when it didn't eventuate. There was a lot of SE current, which made for a very slow day, but outside Motiti was still a lot more productive than the Middle Ground.

There was more sign in the middle than previously, but well off the bottom and not in feed mode.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
     

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers
