Fishing Reports

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

Things had picked up, especially in the shallower water

After finally getting back into the water, we had high hopes for some good fishing after hearing from several sources that things had picked up, especially in the shallower water.

We’d planned on heading out towards the 10m/Pinns, but there was enough westerly that in close was the better option, and found that while there was a bit of fish[tarakihi] around, they weren’t exactly leaping on board.

We moved from outside Omanu to Papamoa, then through the Middle Ground, out to the Okaparus then west of Motiti. Picked up a few fish at each stop, so reasonable tallies by day’s end.

The conditions were quite variable, wind and current coming from different quarters most times we stopped, so that was likely a large part of the slowish day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

    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)
