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.

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
