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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    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)
