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

Plenty of Keepers

We had an overnighter Friday/Saturday, the wind had eased and not a bad forecast, but with more swell running than we’d expected once we got out to Mayor.

The evening fishing was ok, 1 decent kingy, some snapper and tarakihi and quite a lot of jack mackeral, so no shortage of bait.

Saturday was steady, nothing really exciting, but the day was nice, the swell dropped away, all in all  a good trip.

Sunday we tried the Pinns, but they were a bit off , and we ended up doing better in the shallower water, with snapper and tarakihi  coming up.

Quite a lot of smaller fish among them, but plenty of keepers as well.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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 ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    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,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
