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

We finally got an overnighter in Wednesday/Thursday. A bit wet on the way out, but it had settled quite well by the morning.

The bottom fishing went well, with 4 nice kingies, up to 20+ kg caught , and a good selection of snapper, tarakihi, trevally and the like as well.

We also had a heap of bait fish around the boat during the night, with a lot of juvenile gemfish, up to about 40cm being caught. Not something we’ve seen too often.

The drift fishing was a disappointment though, with only a couple of small gemfish  hooked. The conditions were ok, but the baits were consistently untouched.

The bottom fishing on Sunday was good though,  mainly tarakihi and red snapper, some snapper and  a lot nicer day than Saturday was.

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

    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

  • 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
