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

  •  

    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!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    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)
