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

  • 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
