Fishing Reports

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

More schools of fish around

The week started well, with an excellent, settled day when we picked up our kayakers and trampers from Mayor.

Our midweek trip on Thursday was a good one too. Two or three hours of excellent fishing, and by the time the current had picked up enough to put the fish off, everyone had plenty.

We made a brief stop on the way in, but it was a non event so we got in early enough to miss most of the traffic.

The weekend was looking a bit doubtful, and so it proved, with  enough S.Easterly to make it a no go for both days.

The signs are looking better though, with more schools of fish around, we also saw some dolphins, the first for a while, so here’s hoping the Metservices prediction of a long hot summer aren’t just hot air.

    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, 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
