Fishing Reports

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

OK fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor
26 October 2016

We got a Monday trip away, which started well, with some nice tarakihi caught at the 10 mile , on our way to the Pinns. Unfortunately the forecast was woeful, and our 10/15 knot Westerly turned into about 30 from the SW, so we ended up working back through the Karewa spots, which produced next to nothing.

A  ½  day around Brewis went well and we got to the Pinns on Friday. Also good fishing.

Saturday/Sunday’s overnighter was another toughy, had short periods of ok fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor but then faded away. Possibly due to some pretty big tides after the full moon, it sounded like it was hard everywhere, but looking for reasons is a big call. And fish don’t do interviews.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

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!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • 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
