Fishing Reports

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

Very strong currents from the East
10 January 2018
0 0

The big tides are still having an effect on the fishing, with very strong currents from the East  continuing. A bit frustrating as the fish are here, but bite times a short and sweet.

We  took a group of regulars out for a kingfish/Hapuku trip and got a couple of nice kingies and a mixture of gemfish and a Hapuku, losing  a good few due to the inconsistent drifts, with wind and swell against the current yet again.

We’ve started picking  up skippies though, so the game fishing is getting closer with the weekend’s wild weather from the NE likely continuing the improvement.

It certainly stirred up the harbour, with a starboard beacon and a port buoy at the entrance both badly damaged by the storm.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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)
