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

Mainly tarakihi and snapper

Back to the 1 day week again. We got Friday in, the forecast was iffy enough for us to head towards the Penguin shoals  rather than any further out. We had a couple of stops on the way, and got fish- mainly tarakihi and snapper, immediately at both of them, both petered out quite quickly though.

The Penguins was similar, initially good, then move and get  some more, which worked for a while.

After a couple of fishless stops we went back in to Pudney, which also went well at first, with red snapper, pink maomao snapper and even a sucker Hapuku.

So a damp but quite good day overall.

The weekend though, was a non event, too much rain and wind on both days unfortunately.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

  • 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
