Fishing Reports

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

Picking up skipjack and albacore tuna regularly
27 January 2016

A bit quieter midweek with most people back to work.

We headed out to the Pinns as the deeper water is  still the most productive, but unfortunately the tarakihi we pulled up were completely overpowered by the barracuda. Some nice fish, but hardly any were making it to the surface before the gear was snipped off.

So, it was out  to Mayor, where we’d been doing pretty well. Alas, it was a bust too, some pink maomao, porae and red snapper were about it. A beautiful day, no wind,  great conditions with a big lazy swell running.

We have been picking up skipjack and albacore tuna regularly though, a bit of a bonus.

We  gave the 70/80m outside Motiti a go on the Saturday, and found it had improved from previously, with tarakihi and red snapper coming up steadily for most of the day, plus a few more skippies on the way out.

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,

  • 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
