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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

  • 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

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
