Fishing Reports

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

The Super, Wolf and Blue moons
4 January 2018
0 0

Another variable week as far as the fishing goes. We’ve had some good days and some hard ones, mainly due to the wildly varying sea conditions.

The Super, Wolf and Blue moons,  [so much more impressive sounding than closer than usual] create bigger tides and consequently bigger tidal currents, meaning more turbulence on the bottom and shorter feeding times.

So  we’ve had days where there’s been more fishing than catching, but weather has been settled and most are taking home a reasonable amount.

My preference is still the deeper water, 40m+ is more consistent, with a bit more snapper showing up in the last week or so.

We’ve also started to pick up a few skippies, another good sign for now.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

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!!
