Fishing Reports

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

A busy week initially

0 0

A busy week initially, with an average ‘puku trip with a couple of bluenose and some tarakihi from the Penguins.

Wednesday we bottom fished outside Motiti, considerably better catching for mainly tarakihi, Thursday was similar, a bit slower due to increased current, which also brought barracuda and mackeral into the mix and kept us busy sorting them out.

Very large quantities of jellyfish in the water, the N.E. bringing them South.

Friday we had a good start  inside the Labe, but the forecasted N.E. was a few hours early, snotty enough to force us into the harbour, pleasant conditions but not much fish.

Persistent wind and rain effectively killed the weekend. Not a great start to  December.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
