Fishing Reports

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

A good lot of snapper until about 9.30pm

We tried a few variations on the normal routine last week, which yielded some interesting results.

Went to the Pinns midweek and had a good day with a good mixture of snapper and tarakihi through the day.

We then headed back out on an evening trip, trying inside Karewa after a pretty grim effort around the Middle Ground the week before.

It didn’t start well  with only a few kahawai, but checking an old mark paid off, with a good lot of snapper until about 9.30.

Next day was a kids fishing trip, so we stayed close off Omanu to Papamoa and did well on the snapper there, not fast but steady all day, making everyone happy.

Good enough I tried it again on Sunday. Lightning didn’t strike twice though, some came up, slower than Saturday,  so we worked our way to outside Motiti, and most did ok, mainly snapper, with a few tarakihi and trevally and one nice kingy  was a bonus.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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 Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
