Fishing Reports

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

2 great days to start November, even saw our 1st sunfish

We started the week with a couple of trips to Town Pt, then outside and around Motiti, neither of which was particularly noteworthy, some tarakihi and a few snapper.

On Sunday we headed back out to the Pinns, and it was much the same there, the day was so calm we headed to Mayor, and it paid off with an excellent day on the tarakihi, so Monday we tried there again, and never got a fish in the 1st 2 hours.

Luckily, they eventually came on quite well again. So 2 great days to start November, even saw our 1st sunfish and pod of dolphins for the season to top it off.

One noticeable thing was that all the tarakihi had no mud or sand in their gut, they’d all been feeding on krill [eggs, not adults], possibly why the fishing’s been slow.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
