Fishing Reports

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

Really nice day in all respects

A bit better week weatherwise and our first Hapuku trip in a while as well.

And a really nice day in all respects. We got a heap of skippies on the way out, which are always good as bait then got a few  nice Hapuku on the first drift, albeit with a decent tangle as well.

Nothing much on the next couple, so we went a bit deeper and got a  good selection of bluenose and gemfish on the last few drifts. No wind and an easy trip home to top off the day.

Saturday was another settled day but everything was slower, , less birds and dolphins sighted, only 1 skippy on the lures, did some kingfish jigging but only got some kahawai, finished up ok with the bottom fishing with good tarakihi and a few snapper, which are just starting to show up in better numbers.

    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.

  • 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
