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

Nice settled weather

Nice settled weather from the beginning of the week, so we headed out towards the Pinns on Thursday,  and had good fishing initially. Unfortunately the dreaded barracuda showed up in large numbers, and once they’d found us, no matter how  much we shifted we couldn’t lose them. Lost plenty of gear though, so we went back to the 10mile and scratched up a few more. A bit disappointing, but the ‘cuda can be bad at this time of year.

Friday we headed in the opposite direction, around Pudney, not good, Brewis and the Astrolabe which were both steady but okay.

The sign was similar to the day before though, with  a lot of fish well off the bottom, generally indicating turbulent conditions, which put the fish, tarakihi in particular, off.

And another weekend cancelled by bad weather.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 6.12.2012

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • 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

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.
