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

Quality deep water snapper and tarakihi

Given the Metservice’s accuracy lately, when I saw the prediction for a settled winter from them, the kiss of death came to mind, and sure enough, it’s been miserable ever since.

So, we’re back to a trip or two  a week, with the bottom fishing continuing to be pretty good. We’re still concentrating on the deeper water, with good size and quantity of snapper and tarakihi, plus the usual odds and sods.

We’ve been catching a  lot  given they seem to be still off the bite, just playing with the baits, and no real fight as they’re wound in.

There’s a lot of sign on the sounder too, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens when they do decide to get hungry.

No predictions though, that kiss of death springs to mind.

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
