Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of marlin hook-ups and sightings

February got off to a slow start after an excellent January with enough easterly wind over the week to force cancellation of a few trips.

A bit frustrating, but part of the game.

I generally prefer the La Ninya effect, more settled, and a bit damper, but without the strong West/S.West of the El Nino pattern,  like most things though, it can come back to bite you.

It’s shaping up to be a good game fishing season, though. The N.easterlies bringing in the warm water and plenty of skippies and gamefish, with plenty of marlin hook-ups and sightings.

The snapper are also just starting to show up, another trend that should continue to improve, with the tarakihi still mainly in the deeper water but also getting hungrier.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    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)
