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

Niwas saying warmer and milder than it has been

Ahhh. A few days of [mostly] calm weather make for a happier group of fisherfolk.

We’re still getting more consistency in the deeper water, with a good mix of species, including a couple of legal kingfish and a few snapper over 10lb as well as tarakihi and trevally.

We’re also still getting skippies and have had a couple of pods of dolphin playing around the boat, so a bit of entertainment  on the way as well.

It’s going to be interesting seeing what eventuates this winter, Niwa’s saying warmer and milder than it has been, which would be nice if it comes to fruition, but even a couple of weeks of settled weather seems special after the volatility of the last few months.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

    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)
