Fishing Reports

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

The wind picked up as predicted

Well, after 3 weeks of inaction we finally got a day[Sunday] in. Initially an overnighter, but the 35/40 knots Saturday discouraged that, so we got away early Sunday.

Quite reasonable conditions too. We stopped at the Pinns, where there was a strong  SW current running.

Initially we got a good mix of fish, including an 85/90cm kingfish, but things slowed to a stop as it steadily picked up through the morning. Mayor seemed a reasonable alternative, and there was nowhere near the current. Fishing was steady, but predominately pink mao mao  and red snapper, conditions unsettled enough to put the rest off.

The wind picked up as predicted, more 30+kn  NW, but comfortable enough when it’s a following sea. So, overall, not bad.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! 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!!

  • 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
