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

The game fishing continues to be a standout season

We’ve been bopping around trying to find where the tarakihi  have gone since the cyclone slid past a couple of weeks ago.

The snapper have been good in most places we’ve tried, but tarakihi  not so much.

We went out  to the Pinns on Tuesday , mainly snapper again, then came back to shallower water  and did pick up some  tarakihi there.

A day trip around Motiti on Saturday was more of the same.

An evening fish on the way to Mayor saw us have a good run on the snapper until after dark, and on Sunday we finally got onto tarakihi, good size and condition, with quite a few getting close to spawning. A 3m odd Mako, enjoyed a few of them too, really good to see, a beautiful animal.

The game fishing continues to be a standout season, with more tagging and landing of mainly  striped marlin and mahimahi over the weekend.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
