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.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
