Fishing Reports

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

Very good around the Astrolabe

We tried a few different spots this week. More Westerly forecasts meant heading towards Mayor was going to be too beam on, so  a more comfortable trip was had by heading more East.

Friday was beautiful, and the fishing also very good around the Astrolabe, so even home a bit early.

Saturday’s forecast was similar to Friday’s, but ended up  with more S.W. and  a lumpier sea than expected. Friday’s spots were less productive, so  we tried a few different ones, eventually finding good quantities of tarakihi, along with snapper, some trevally and a couple of legal kingies, one of which bounced back over the side after being taken out of the net. Sorry bout that!

Still, a good couple of days.

    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)

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
