Fishing Reports

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

Warm water, skippies, kingies, marlin and autumn
26 March 2014

Well. one thing the storm of the century did , the one the  weekend before last when it blew and rained some, [almost unheard of in NZ] was slow the fishing down a bit.

Well, I think it did, we had a few quieter days where the tarakihi eased up, but possibly coincidence, as conditions have continued to be very pleasant, with little wind and current, and they did pick up later in the week.

Water temperature is still around 20.5* and we’re still picking up skippies and seeing the odd marlin out towards Mayor, so autumn is continuing the trend of later summers that we’ve seen over the  last few years.

There’s been an increase in the number of kingfish being caught, lots of rats, right down to 20cm, as well as a few legal ones, not that usual when bottom fishing, but a welcome sight for the lucky anglers.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

  • 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
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
