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

The tarakihi are spawning

Well we snuck another weekend in, which has to be a bonus at present. Both good calm days too,. Saturday was  windless, sunny and warm, we even had a pod of dolphins swimming with us for quite some time. A bonus at this time of year.

Sunday was cool with plenty of cloud, but still settled, and the fishing was good, probably a bit  better than Saturday, with plenty of variety in the mix.

The tarakihi are spawning, and they generally go well into July before tapering off, so they’re feeding quite hard now. In conjunction with the snapper moving deeper it means good fishing when we get out.

    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)
