Fishing Reports

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

Weather's warmer and the days longer, fish still in deeper water

Still a bit quiet on the bookings, but the weather’s warmer and the days longer, so we should be getting  more calls soon.

We went out on Sunday, stopped inside the Okaparus and got some nice snapper and a few good sized tarakihi. Enough that I thought it might be worth checking out a couple of spots in the shallower water to see if they have started to move in.

No luck however, so we carried on outside Motiti. It’s always a balancing act between where they were and where they’re likely to be heading. Which should be in, but not yet this year it seems.

Tried a few more spots, but still not much until we got into the deeper water, which is still the snapper and tarakihi preference at present.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • 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
