Fishing Reports

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

Swell running dropped quickly
24 July 2017

Another quieter week where we got Wednesday in and had another good day, although there was more current running, which with wind holding us in the opposite direction made it a bit harder to hold on the fish.

Once we did things improved though. The forecast was bad for the weekend, but as isn’t uncommon for the Bay, most of the rain had dumped before getting to us, the swell running dropped quickly, and we got the Sunday in.

We ended up going to Mayor, as the current was unfishable in close. Mayor was slowish, with the current less, but running from the N.E., almost exactly opposite to the direction it had been coming from in the shallower water. It was right on the new moon too, which often seems to be when the fishing’s harder. A generalisation though, nothing’s that simple with fishing.

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

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
