Fishing Reports

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

The El Nino predicted seems to come and go

After the encouraging signs from last weekend, we thought Town Pt would be well worth a look,  It was not. We barely caught a couple of tiny snapper, so headed outside Motiti and ended up doing pretty well.

Feeling confident, we headed back out there on Saturday, unfortunately lightning didn’t strike twice, a lot harder day.

Then back out to Mayor on an  overnighter, but wind, current, and swell made the evening fish too aggravating to persist with.

The next day started hard, but we ended up with a good tally of a wide variety of fish. Snapper, tarakihi, trevally, porae, red snapper and kingfish  the more appreciated of them.

The El Nino predicted seems to come and go, a week of Westerlies, then a week of Easterlies which is the La Ninya pattern. Even the fish seem confused.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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

    Paul
