Fishing Reports

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

Lots of westerly winds lately, but all fishable, and good catches

Lots of  westerly winds lately, but all fishable, and good catches,  mainly in the deeper water.

A mid week overnighter saw some strange currents, swinging 180* from North to South  in a couple of miles of steaming, which made for interesting anchoring.

Mayor was fishing well though, with good variety and size, including up to 4kg snapper, trevally, tarakihi etc. The evening fish also was good, which helps take the pressure off.

More bottom fishing trips over the next few days were similar, good days, with Sunday being the only exception, the SW predicted arrived a few hours early and slowed things considerably, but an upbeat crew enjoyed the day regardless, which is always good to see.

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

  • 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
