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

A lot of snapper caught

We had to cancel last Sunday’s trip due to bad weather but managed to get Monday in with most of the people booked, so that was a bonus. Not a bad day either and good fishing with a lot of snapper caught. Wednesday was similar conditions but mostly tarakihi with a couple of snapper.
 
The bigger tides we get in winter around the new moon seem to have more influence on the fishing, often more inconsistent, bigger currents, generally a bit harder. Snapper are less affected by current, often it’s what brings them to the boat, conversely, it’s why they can be so fickle. There one minute, bit of a wind or tide shift, gone the next.
 
We got Saturday in, ok steady fishing, tarakihi and pink maomao mainly, but the N/N.E front coming through killed the next few days.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
