Fishing Reports

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

2015 has started with some great, settled weather and the light N./N.E winds have been bringing in the warmer water along with the skippies and billfish, which have been mainly caught outside Mayor and the Penguin Shoals.

The bottom fishing remains unpredictable, with some good catches in both the deep and shallower water, but no consistency. We’ve had good days at the Pinns, Maketu and even the Middle Ground, followed next day by very slow fishing.

Mainly tarakihi being caught, with the odd legal snapper, a lot at present around the 28/29cm mark, a bit frustrating at times. The tarakihi have been very  good size generally, just a bit on the shy side.

Early days though.

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

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
