Fishing Reports

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

Persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong
12 September 2016
0 0

After last week’s beautiful conditions, we were looking forward to fishing throughout the week. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday turned a bit sour, but we had some persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong, who couldn’t wait to get out regardless. It was blowing Southerly, so we fished in close for the day.

The fishing around the Middle Ground proved to be quite tough, but there was a lot of current on the bottom which wouldn’t have been helping. The sign was quite high off the bottom from the screen on the sounder. This is generally a pretty good indication the feeding pattern will be a bit sporadic. Not to worry though, the guys still had a great day, which is the main thing.

Sunday would have been the pick of the bunch, but we didn’t manage to get out, fingers crossed for some settled weather this weekend!

    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 Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    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
