Fishing Reports

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

Working a bit deeper, between 50 and 80m
24 April 2018
0 0

A fairly typical week as far as conditions go, with good settled days interspersed with quite strong West/SW winds.

We got a couple of days in though, working a bit deeper, between 50 and 80m.

With quite good results, a mixture of tarakihi and snapper mainly, with quite a few undersize kingies as well. The snapper were mainly sizeable, so seem to have moved out from the shallower water now. Still plenty of small ones in close, but the size has been diminishing for a few weeks now.

At least this is a more normal pattern of fishing for this time of year and with any luck it should continue for a while now.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
