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.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
