Fishing Reports

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

We've stuck with the offshore fishing

Another few days of reef fishing trips, with the usual mix of results.

We’ve stuck with the offshore fishing, as in closer hasn’t improved and at least the better days are good out further.

The Pinns were off on Thursday so it was out to Mayor, where it fired well around Tuhua, nice tarakihi, and some excellent trevally.

Friday at the Pinns was similar, not much sign and conditions were odd. Tuhua was too, weird sign on the sounder, missing our anchor marks, fish off the bite. Some combination of opposing currents perhaps, Friday night and Saturday morning certainly cut up rough too.

Sunday was a different ocean, big schools of dolphin towards Mayor, gannets working amongst them and several other pods reported inside Motiti. A lot more sea life and action generally.

Fishing was ok, and the sign looked better than it has for some time. All in all a positive day and looking good for December.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • 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 Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
