Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of snapper, tarakihi and a couple of good kingies as well

Another week of wildly variable weather, with strong winds one day, calm and mild the next.

We called off a Thursday trip due to the bad forecast, which we could have got in, as the Northerly was very late coming, but hit hard when it did front up.

Saturday’s forecast was bad, but we took the punt, and after several hours of strong SW, it eased right  off . The fishing was good too, plenty of snapper, tarakihi and a couple of good kingies as well.

Sunday was a perfect day, no swell or wind, lovely conditions. The fishing was slower than Saturday,  a noticeable increase in current overnight was the reason for that. It did ease after the tide change though, and things subsequently picked up nicely.

And, we’re still catching skippies, both on the way out and returning to port, always a good perq.

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,

    Shane Janssen

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
