Fishing Reports

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.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
