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.

  • 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
