Fishing Reports

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

We covered a few different spots last week!

Good weather and fluctuating fishing meant we covered a few different spots last week. We tried the Pinns on Wednesday and did well on the tarakihi until midday, then it just stopped.

Tried  for over an hour before heading shallower and lucking onto some good snapper to finish the day.

A short Friday kept us closer to home , but we found good snapper outside the Okaparus.

Saturday, a late cancellation meant no fishing, no refund there,  a  perfect day too. Sunday made up for it  though, good fishing and good crew, with a good selection of fish caught.

Monday looked like being more of the same , but 30+knots of Southerly, which hadn’t been forecast, forced us behind Motiti, where we lucked onto some good snapper, so a good end to what looked pretty dubious at the beginning of the trip.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • 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

    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)
