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.


  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    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 ,
