Fishing Reports

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

There's plenty of fish around, it just comes down to conditions

The last couple of weeks certainly saw a wide range of fishing and weather conditions. From excellent to extremely hard, windy to flat calm. Quite often within a day or  two of each other.

We’ve  been doing well  in the deeper water on tarakihi, with the odd snapper and trevally as well,  mainly due to the offshore winds keeping the warmer currents out further. Consequently the snapper  haven’t shown up in close in any quantity yet.

Town Pt, Karewa and the middle ground have all had their moments but been more inconsistent due to some strong currents than the 50m plus areas.

We got one Hapuku trip in, which started well, with mainly gemfish on the first drifts then increasing current slowed things down again

Still, overall, pretty good. There’s plenty of fish around, it just comes down to conditions on the day and at present they’re very volatile.

    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)

    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!!
