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.

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
     

  • 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
