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

Weather was more autumny

The weather was more autumny early in the week, with the coolest southerlies for a while. They weren’t too bad though and we still got a couple of trips in, with a good mix of tarakihi and snapper in addition to the usual undersize kingfish.

We also picked up a few skippies on the way, good to see they’re hanging in there, we’ve picked up more of them in the last couple of weeks than most of the summer.

There was also a pod of orca in the harbour on Saturday, it’s more usual to see them around December/January, so well behind schedule.

The Met Service did themselves proud with multiple forecast changes around Friday for the weekend, ranging from NW to N to W and SW. It blew East in the end, the one direction they didn’t call.

Well, they did once it was actually blowing, more of  a nowcast than a forecast. So that flagged Sunday.

  • 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
