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

Saturdays northerly a bit too strong for us

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

    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)

  • 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
