Fishing Reports

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

The wet weather meant not much fishing but certainly got the lawns growing, a lose lose situation from my point of view. Still it was ok for the Paeroa  Motorbike races, a bonus.

We did get the Wednesday in, which was a nice sunny , settled  day. The fishing  started well and was good until about lunchtime when they  just stopped.

No obvious reason, conditions were still excellent, good sign,  just totally off the bite. A friend fishing  about 12miles away had exactly the same thing, which isn’t uncommon. The fishy collective unconscious perhaps.

We tried a few other spots in closer, but no more luck there either, so home we went

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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

  • 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
