Fishing Reports

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

Steady catching

We got a couple of good days out this week. Thankfully the nice spell of weather held until the weekend, and we got both days in. The forecast was for some Westerly on Saturday, then dropping off to light NW on Sunday. The forecast was spot on this week, despite a little low making things a little tricky.

The water colour hadn’t improved much since last week, and the current was still evident, possibly from the small tsunami the day before. Luckily this didn’t impact the fishing, with Saturday producing good numbers of tarakihi, snapper, some nice trevally, and loads of rat kingfish. The last fish of the day was a good 8-9kg legal kingfish, so nice to see a few of the larger ones schooling with the rats.

Sunday was an easier one stopping in at the middle ground, and Brewis shoals producing good numbers of tarakihi, consistently throughout the day. We still had a lot of current, but luckily it didn’t bother the fish, so it was steady catching, on a nice flat ocean all day. Bring on next weekend!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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 there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    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
