Fishing Reports

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

All in all, not one to put in the record books

Last week was a bust. We had a good number booked on Monday, but after the gale blowing Sunday and a similar forecast for Monday, I canned it.

Typically, it was nowhere near as windy, and we couldn’t get the numbers for any alternate days midweek.

Conditions were good, we stopped around the Okaparus and had a good start on the tarakihi, then headed towards the Lab, stopped on good sign, did really well for about 20 minutes, then the current picked up from the South, the fish stopped biting and we tried pretty well everywhere from 80m to 30m for nothing much else for the rest of the day.

All in all, not one to put in the record books.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • 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
