Fishing Reports

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

Mayor has been fishing well, with some big porae

Another busy week with several day reef trips and a couple of overnighters and all of them pretty good fishing.

Mainly tarakihi during the day, with some snapper, red snapper and trevally among them, but the evening fishing has seen a lot more snapper coming on board and they’ve now shown  up in the shallower water

Mayor has been fishing well,  with some big porae, and a nice kingfish of around 25lb caught in addition to  the snapper, tarakihi etc.

The skippies are still quite sparse, with even the game fishing boats not catching many, although they are picking up a  few marlin. It will be interesting to see if  they stick around for as  long as they did last year.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    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)
