Fishing Reports

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

Some near limit catches of tarakihi

We had a quieter week, partly due to a couple of poisoned fingers. That might teach me to put some antiseptic on when these things happen.

We got the weekend in though, after the very strong westerlies had eased. They did generate a lot of current however, which meant a lot of reanchoring, but we did surprisingly well, with some near limit catches of tarakihi.

Paul, decky for the day, also got a nice snapper and a good kingie[which he shared with the crew].

The sign was better than it has been for a while, and the tarakihi were definitely more bitey.

I  had great expectations for Sunday, but it was  a lot harder, the current was more unpredictable, and we were swinging off the marks all day.

Frustrating, as the day was beautiful.


  • 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

  • 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.
