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.

    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!!

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
