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

Reasonable gemfish and bluenose caught

A couple of beautiful calm days last weekend and quite good fishing as well.

We fished around the Labe on Saturday for mainly tarakihi, with a few quite nice snapper in the mix as well. Had to do a bit of resetting, as the breeze was just enough to swing us around as it varied from SW to NW, causing the odd tangle, but good fishers and the right gear[decent weight sinkers] minimised the issue.

Sunday we did a day Hapuku trip. No Hapuku, but reasonable gemfish and bluenose caught, and a big increase in dolphins, shearwaters and jellyfish all point to the warmer waters starting to move in. Good to see.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

    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)

  • 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
