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

Motiti was worth a look

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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
