Fishing Reports

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.

  • 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
