Fishing Reports

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

Strong winds giving things a good stir up
21 January 2014

We started last week with a bluenose trip, but the 15knot SW forecast ended up about 30+. We had a good start, but as the wind picked up the fishing went down, still, a reasonable day, with a small bass  and some gemfish in the mix.

A good keen group on Friday saw us out in even stronger wind, but staying close made conditions ok, not so much for the fishing,  kahawai and a legal kingy being most of the catch.

The weekend was back to good conditions but slow fishing, although a trip to the 80m on Sunday was more productive. The continuing strong but erratic currents are the main problem.

A pity the coming blow isn’t a bit stronger, as a good stir up would be beneficial.

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
