Fishing Reports

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

Motiti was worth a look
17 October 2017
0 0

Another week of West and SW winds, which is normal for this time of year, so we went with the flow and  headed out toward the Astrolabe initially. Not  much sign, and the fishing was steady but quite slow. We decided around Motiti was worth a look, and even though the sign was still a bit scratchy, the fishing was good. Mainly tarakihi, with the odd small kingy.

Sunday was supposed to be similar weatherwise, and it started out ok, but the 15kn forecast was about 20kn shy of predictions, making it pretty well unfishable, so one we can thank the Metservice for. They did up  windspeed estimate for the afternoon, but nowcasts aren’t much use. We already knew it was blowing by the time they changed it.

Generally  they have been quite accurate, but not with that one.

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
    Jo Davis

  • 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

Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
