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

Nice pannie snapper, mostly between 32 and 36cm

We were lucky to get a break in the weather to get in a stag do on the Saturday. We started the day with tough conditions with some North Easterly wind and swell. The fishing was equally tough for the first part of the morning, with only 2 Tarakihi onboard by 11 o’clock.

After some perseverance we managed to get onto a nice school of fish, which turned out to be some nice pannie snapper. Mostly between 32 and 36cm. They came up in good numbers for about 45 minutes, at which point the Tarakihi took over, and we caught nice fish steadily until it was time to head home. Had to cancel Sundays trip due to some big weather, but was a good chance to rest up after a productive one on Saturday. Bring on some more settled weather!

    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

  • 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
