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

More good weather and good reef fishing has been a continuing theme.

More good weather and  good reef fishing has been a continuing theme.

We had a nice change on Wednesday targeting Hapuku. Conditions looked good, but when we did the first drifts, a red snapper was the only result.

We did several more and lost quite a bit of gear for no fish except 1 gemfish. Quite frustrating, but that’s the thing with drift fishing,, you’re at the whim of the conditions.

The crew decided a reef fish was a better option, which was a good call ,and we did well off Mayor on tarakihi. We also caught a solitary skipjack, first of the season.

The snapper have finally shown up, and around Brewis  we did ok on them and tarakihi.

Still looks to be a very late season though, the next few weeks will tell the story.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
