Fishing Reports

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

Skippies and marlin seen and hooked around the 1000m mark

It’s getting closer to summer conditions with skippies and marlin seen and hooked around the 1000m mark, still nothing much closer to Mayor though.

The deep water bottom fishing’s still productive,  the main variable being the amount of current from the North and East, with the better fishing occurring with less current.

Wind over current makes for harder fishing and we’ve had mainly Westerlies. Presumably the big highs to the North generate the current, but they  can change so much from day to day that it’s a  bit of a lottery. Keeps things interesting though, and even the slower days have still been productive.

We’ve fished inside Mayor, outside Motiti, and around the Labe with similar results in the last week, so getting a line in the water is the main thing.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
