Fishing Reports

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

Marlin freejumping beside the boat

Ahhh, April showers. Gentle rain….yeah, right.

Friday was ok for an overnighter, though.  There was SE predicted, but not too much and it was late coming anyway, so we had a reasonable evening fish with  some nice snapper and trevally also.

Saturday  we stayed on the Western side of Mayor, had quite a good morning on tarakihi and trevally but not the snapper we’d normally get at this time of year.

We also had a marlin freejumping beside the boat and a couple of little makos stealing the odd fish, so an entertaining morning and the Eastern side was ok too.

Sunday was still a bit of SE slop, but well fishable and more good fishing. We even picked up a couple of skippies on the way home.

    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)

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
