Fishing Reports

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

15+kg kingy in the early morning

Just the one overnighter this week. Out to Mayor on Friday evening with a couple of stops on the way for a few snapper, but not very exciting so on to Mayor.

The crew fished well into the night, but still not a lot apart from koreru, smallish porae and a couple more snapper. Des, my fishing machine decky, did however pull up a 15+kg kingy in the early morning, proving once again you have to have a line in the water to catch a fish.

The day continued well, with a good variety of species coming up, not as many snapper as previously though. We then headed deeper for some drift fishing.
Did a couple of drifts for one small bluenose and then headed home as the wind started to pick up enough from the N.E. to make it quite uncomfortable.

Enough so that I decided to can the  Sunday trip .

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • 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
