Fishing Reports

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

October continues to have excellent weather and the fishing’s been  good too.

We’ve continued working around Motiti, with the fish anywhere between 50 and 80m. Two good days midweek with mainly tarakihi coming up.

Saturday had too much SE wind but it was calm and settled by Sunday, which fished well initially, then slowed up, so we went to my never fail spot, where, naturally, we barely caught a fish. We then came back to a bit of foul we’d run over with some sign on it and ended up with a heap of tarakihi, red snapper, 2 legal kingies and  a 6/7kg snapper, which was caught by a 10 year old.

So, pretty good and reconfirming that inconsistency is the only constant with fishing.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
