Fishing Reports

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

  • 5.1.2010

    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

  • 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 there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
