Fishing Reports

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

Westerly winds were pretty unrelenting all week

A quiet week for us, and everyone else except harbour fishers, as the Westerly winds were pretty unrelenting all week, meaning all trips postponed until it eases a bit.

The El Nino effect generally means nice weather but lots of sea breezes,  we’ve seen more rain than blue skies, so hopefully we’ll get them along with less wind.

The Met service and NIWAs predictions about coming weather patterns aren’t always that spot on, so it’ll be interesting to see what does eventuate in the next few weeks.

As an optimist, I’m hoping for a late, but long settled summer, plenty of fish, and the Astrolabe exclusion zone to be reduced or removed.

That would be nice.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

  • 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

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
