Fishing Reports

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

Amazing amount of current, but did well all around the boat

Another up and down week with the fishing. We went down to town Pt on Thursday and had a pretty good or pretty slow day, depending where you were on the boat.

The ones in line with the current did well, the others not so much. A lot of very good sized tarakihi too, although it did taper off as the day progressed.

So Friday we tried it again, less current and wind, but also a lot less fish. By 11.30 I’d had it so we headed outside Motiti to the deeper water.

No sign on most marks, but a little on one so we gave it a go and, amazingly given the amount of current, did well all around the boat.

Saturday was a stag do thankfully, a really hard day, but nice enough in shallow water. Sunday canned, too much wind.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
