Fishing Reports

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

15/18kg kingy
29 August 2018
0 0

A quiet week, with only an overnighter Friday/Saturday on.

I was expecting some good fishing, with light SW forecast and a full moon, plus we’d had good results the previous week.

However, the wind was stronger than expected, and a stop on the way out was a  non event. So out to Mayor, where we relearned the danger of making predictions about fishing. Good conditions on the Eastern side but very slow.

The next day was good though, mainly tarakihi  in deeper water, some red snapper, snapper and trevally, plus a good  15/18kg kingy which had devoured a red snapper initially  caught.

All in all, an excellent trip.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.9.2009

    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,
