Fishing Reports

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

Saturdays northerly a bit too strong for us
6 August 2014

Just the one day last week, with Saturday’s northerly a bit too strong for us to get out.

The Thursday was a good one though, with a good mix of fish, although we’ve been seeing a few more snapper, with the tarakihi tending to be a bit fussier now that most of the females have spawned now.

We should be starting to see them showing up in the shallower water from now on. A couple of years ago it was full on but  last year was a different  story, less action right through the season in close. The deeper water and Mayor were consistently good though and as long as we’re picking them up from somewhere, that’s the main thing.

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • 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

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
