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.

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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
