Fishing Reports

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

Motiti and Middle Ground area

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..

  • 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
