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

Middle Ground and Papamoa tarakihi and snapper starting to show

Last week was another fairly quiet one and we ended up doing Sunday only as The weather was still not good on Saturday. We mainly worked the shallower water around the Middle Ground and Papamoa areas.

The tarakihi are starting to show up more in close now, with a few sizeable snapper [and quite a few little ones] among them.

There was a bonus for everyone when some humpback whales were sighted cruising around not too far from the entrance.

They're not seen all that often so a great end to the day.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • 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.
