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.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
