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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    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

  • 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

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,
