Fishing Reports

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

A better start to October

A better start to  October, with a few days in during the week.

Monday we headed out to the 12 mile and Pinns where we still had the wind and current opposing each other. Neither was too bad though, so while the fishing was steady the conditions were good with a good mix of fish.

Friday we had a SE forecast, the first for a while, so decided to keep in a bit closer, working around the Astrolabe, getting mainly tarakihi before trying  the Okaparus where we got some reasonable snapper.

We continued moving in, but once we got shallower than 40m, things slowed down noticeably. Overall not too bad though.

Saturday was slower, but also more of a social day, so less emphasis on the fishing, more on enjoying the day.

Sunday rained and blew as forecast, so no go.

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
