Daily Fishing Trips in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

Come fishing with the experts on the MV Manutere, we take fishers out to enjoy a days reef fishing for the best eating fish. You keep what you catch so you can share with your family and friends on your return.

Brett see’s his mission as finding the fish for you to catch. He If you haven’t fished before, he’ll teach you how. Brett has been working on the water for 30 odd years now and experience speaks for itself!
The Manutere is set up to take out day trips with up to 25 people and 24 hour trips for up to 10 people. Targeting tarakihi, snapper, trevally, John Dory and all those other beautiful bottom dwellers fit for a kings table.

We also take out 12 and 24 hour trips for the deeper dwellers like Hapuku, Bass, Gemfish and Bluenose. These guys feed in 200 - 300 metres deep so its a real thrill to see one come to the surface. We fish for the deep dwellers mostly around Mayor island (Tuhua) which is one of the most scenic islands in New Zealand. Motiti island is the other beautiful island off our shores where its shallower to fish for the table species and Brett has so many spots around the island to find fish, he’ll keep looking till he finds them.

We not only supply and teach you to use the fishing gear, but we also throw in the expertise of an experience skipper, one of the best in the bay.
You can join us at the Bridge Marina where we are berthed or we can pick you up from Salisbury wharf at Mount Maunganui.

If you are on your own and want to join a public day, we can do that. If you are part of a group and would like to hire Brett and the boat for a special charter we can do that too.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Great days fishining came home with a chili bin full of fish, Brett worked hard to keep us on the fish all day. My 14yr old son had a great day and is looking forward to next trip.
