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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
