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.

  • 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

  • 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
