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

We're still working the deeper water with good results

The westerlies continue to have the biggest influence on fishing at present. No sign of skipjack and snapper, water’s still a bit too cool for them. It’s not too far off though, we’ve had a few sharks around the boat, plenty of sunfish, gannets, dolphins etc, everything but the fish.

We’re still working the deeper water with good results, although Saturday, the calmest and most settled day of the week, was the slowest in terms of catching, although we topped things off with a last stop in 60m which was more productive than previously.

Fish are tricky little devils.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
