Fishing Reports

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

Saturday of Labour Weekend
29 October 2014

A busy week, but with boat work  rather than fishing. Antifouling and periodic mechanical maintenance being part of the fun of owning a boat.

Fortunately, getting regular use is one of big things in keeping things ticking along.

We did get the Saturday of Labour Weekend in, and had a good day out with a nice mix of fishers. The fishing was fairly hard though, we stayed inside Motiti at first , then worked around the Okaparus where we did get onto a few more, mainly tarakihi.  Everyone ended  up with fish  to take home and the day got better and better weatherwise, all in all not a bad day.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks

  • 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
