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

Tarakihi have been better in the deeper reefs

February’s been more unsettled and overcast than normal, but the year to date has been disappointing after a great looking start late December.

Not too bad compared to the rest of the world though, I guess.

Weather kept us in the shallower water for a couple of days last week, and it ‘s still on the slow side, although the snapper are good when you can find them.

Tarakihi have been better in the deeper reefs, partly because the strong currents, normally opposing the  wind just to make it even more challenging, have been easing.

What has been the most notable feature this year is that little bits of sign are where we’re catching most fish. Good looking sign has produced the odd fish, but nothing like it should, or normally would. Another little anomaly to keep you guessing.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
