Fishing Reports

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

Murphys Law in action, again
12 May 2015

A quieter week for us. Thursday’s trip was a no win situation, the Met service was saying 25+knots , which looked as though it might be late coming, but  if we went it would blow, and if we cancelled it’d be late. So I canned, and of course it was late.  Murphy’s Law in action, again.

Saturday was a good day though. We went to the Pinns, and had a good selection come up, snapper, tarakihi, and a couple of good kingies, courtesy of the man with the jigging rod.  There were quite a lot of undersize[kingies] caught as well, a common sight in the last year or two.

The current was really severe though, becoming almost unfishable, so we went back to the 12mile, where there was no current apparent, and finished off the day with quite a lot of trevally and more snapper.

A pity that our Sunday charter cancelled on us.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day
