Fishing Reports

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
