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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen

    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,
