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

Nice weather and overnight fishing

A couple of tougher days again early in the week, with the snapper we’d been picking up moving on. So it was back to scratching around again and picking up  a few here and there.

Two overnighters helped the cause, as Mayor has picked up and the bottom fishing was good, with a good variety; snapper , red snapper, trevally and tarakihi as well as a 13kg kingy coming up.

Saturday was more of the same, being the nicest day of the year so far, good fishing, no  current or wind, lovely.

The drift fishing’s been a little slower, still bluenose and gemfish predominately. We tried some areas North of Mayor, but less sign, and only gemfish there. Still, a great eating fish though. Things are looking settled for the coming week, so here’s hoping.

    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

    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)
