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

Very nice to see settled weather over Easter

Very nice to see settled weather over Easter. Still a good mix of fish being caught in the 30/40m areas around Motiti, with snapper, kingfish, often just undersize, and kahawai more prevalent inside the island, and some good catches of golden snapper and tarakihi in the deeper water outside and around the Okaparus.

Some good  schools of kahawai around Astrolabe, but the bottom fishing’s been  quite slow.

We’re still getting some skippies on the lures, quite close in too, so it’s worth getting them in the water early on.

Mayor’s still fishing quite well with good snapper and tarakihi, although the drift fishing’s been slow. It’s always more at the whim of the wind and currents though, so nothing new.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
