Fishing Reports

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!

    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)

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time
