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

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
