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

We had a busy week, with Tauranga Boys College

We had a busy week, with 3 days taking out students and teachers from Tauranga Boys College. Monday  we worked around the middle ground for not much, but got onto some tarakihi at  Pudney. Tuesday we started at Pudney, only to find there wasn’t a lot happening there this time either. Our final trip was Thursday and after another slow start we ended up doing well inside Motiti, a pleasing finish for the group, who stayed keen and ended up with a good result.

We took a tramping group to  Mayor on Wednesday, picking them up on Friday after fishing our way out Mayor.

The Pinnacles were very slow, but the Garden Patch ticked along quite well and the trampers had good calm trips both ways, good all round.

Saturday was another nice day, although another slow one with the fishing,  frustrating, but hard to do much about, hopefully the Easterly that blew in on Sunday with stir them up a bit.


  • 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
