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

Settled weekend and good fishing to go with it

Nice to see another settled weekend and good fishing to go with it.

We went around the Pinns Saturday morning and had quite good fishing, quite a few pink maomao as well as tarakihi , red snapper and a few snapper, although they’re getting more scarce.

The wind picked up a little, so we tried in a bit closer, and did better than expected on the tarakihi, with quite a lot of undersize snapper also, a bit of a surprise.

A quick turnaround and back to Mayor, where the evening fishing was steady, the usual mix, plus a couple of good kingies.

Sunday’s drift fishing was slow, good sign, but just a few gemfish and a couple of bluenose. Frustrating, but all part of the game.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

    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)

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
