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.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
     

  • 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

    Tanya 

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
