Fishing Reports

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

Working in the deeper water

We’ve been working in the deeper water after trying the closer areas with limited success. Normally it’s where  the fish are at this time of year, but we’ve been hearing that it’s a late season.

The amount of barracuda we’ve been catching backs this up, normally they’re worst well before Christmas. Still, better them and good  tarakihi and trevally, [not much snapper yet], than not much of anything.

The N.  & N.E seem to be helping though, we caught some skipjack and albacore tuna last Thursday, first of the season, and dropped quite a few, so hopefully they’re around for a while now.

It was snotty enough that we lost the weekend, but it’s certainly looking better overall.

    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)

    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
