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

  • 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
