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

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
