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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • 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,

    Shane Janssen

    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
    Jo Davis
