Fishing Reports

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

Particularly big tides

The beginning of the week started well, even with some particularly big tides, with continued good fishing in the deeper water.

Some average weather midweek meant our next trip was on Saturday, and it was quite radically different. We  worked  a few of the deeper marks , around Brewis, the Labe and outside Motiti, for a few tarakihi, but the current was  too strong, and the weather too sloppy [another great Metservice forecast]to continue.

We worked our way in, from outside to inside Motiti, quite a few marks around the Middle Ground, into 25m and effectively got nothing. So, the deeper water still is the better option from our point of view

    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)

    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
