Fishing Reports

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

Positive start to October fishing
9 October 2013
0 0

October has started more positively than September ended, with some settled conditions over the last week.

Wednesday we took a public trip to Town Pt, where we had a nice day with a lot of good sized tarakihi coming up.

A half day on Thursday around the Middle Ground was a lot slower though, with a few fish in the 20m depths only.

Saturday, Town Pt went very well in the morning, then slowed enough that we headed outside Motiti, but much the same there.

Our overnighter had a good start, with an evening fish producing good sized snapper in quantity. The next day at Mayora bit slower, but still some nice tarakihi, plus a few bluenose and gemfish to top off some great settled weather.

    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.
