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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
