Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of tarakihi caught Thursday, and another good one on Saturday

It actually started to cool down after the S.E. on Thursday, so I guess autumn is on the way. The fishing has been still generally excellent, with plenty of tarakihi caught Thursday, and another good one on Saturday, also fishing  around Motiti.

Sunday was a  different story though, the S.E. wind had gone, but the current had picked up hugely, we gave a few spots outside Motiti a go, but it was basically unfishable, even 16oz sinkers skipping off the bottom. In closer was a non event, but after a lot of moving around we found a settled  patch of water in the lee of the island and ended up catching  quite a good variety of fish, trevally, tarakihi, red snapper and even a few legal snapper which look like they’re just starting to show up in the deeper water [over 40m]. So looking good for the next few weeks, [or months] hopefully.

    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 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.

  • 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
