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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Alan Chamberlain
