Fishing Reports

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

Still with a lot of current in the deeper water

Another mainly settled week, unfortunately only  enough  bookings to get the Saturday in.

A nice settled day, and not much wind in the preceding days, but still with a lot of current in the deeper water, so slow fishing.

It got slower as the day progressed so we tried around 65m , less current but still slow, so I tried a spot we haven’t checked in quite a while and it did okay.

A nice assist to the day’s tally and making a nice day just that bit better.

Sunday’s 25/35 knot Northerly forecast didn’t really happen, but too much to go on.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    Cheers

    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)
