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.

    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)
