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

The weather has been the hardest thing about the fishing at the moment.

We were out one day last week, but the South Easterlies have been making it tough for us to get out. Its been difficult for the Metservice to predict, as there has been so much weather on the map.

We have been doing most of our fishing around the Motiti and Middle Ground area, catching a good range of fish. The best bite has been in the afternoon, through the high tide, with both snapper, and plenty of small kingfish coming on the bite. There have been some decent sized ones amongst them, with a few of our fishers being reefed by some nice ones. The water has still been warm, with plenty of school fish, and the odd shark cruising around with them. Looking forward to what is hopefully a nice calm weekend, the deeper spots around Motiti have produced well, so would be nice work our way out from the shallower waters to the deep, to find out whether the fish have moved, and to check whether the Tarakihi are showing up in numbers..

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • 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

    Paul
