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

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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)
