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

The Fish Seem to Have Finally Moved in Closer
30 September 2014

Well, the fish seem to have finally moved in closer. We went to Town Pt, and did ok there, checked a few spots in the Middle Ground on the way down and picked up a few at each spot also. So, nice to have a few more options available.

We did an overnighter to Mayor Friday/Sat. and found it a bit slow, got a few fish in the evening and next morning, but had quite a lot of fluctuating currents throughout the trip which made the fishing hard. No shortage of sign, but most of it well off the bottom, which usually equates to harder fishing, and did this time too. Still, good weather and a good crew made up for it.

Interesting to see that in 3 years the Resolvers’ have managed to pick up a whole 50t of debris from the Lab. At that rate it’ll only take  250 years to get the rest. No wonder they won’t reduce the 3.6km exclusion zone [the whole Astrolabe is only 600m across BTW], we might be able to see just what they get up to.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    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 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
