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.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
