Fishing Reports

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

November has been a quantum improvement

November has been a quantum improvement on the last couple of months weatherwise, barely a day that hasn’t been fishable.

The fishing’s continued to be patchy, with some good catches coming up for some , and a bit slow for others.

The interesting thing has been there appears to be no real rhyme or reason for the variation.

One person will be doing well with squid, next one not, same with tuatuas, bonito etc. Similar gear, hook size, sinkers, but varying results.

It’s not just the ability of the fisher, although that helps, it really is the luck of the day to a large extent.

We’ve had a variety of cross currents and wind shifts which might be some of the reason, but at the end of the day, we’re on the top, they’re on the bottom and what goes on in between is pretty much a mystery.

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

    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)
