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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

  • 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.

    Regards
