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 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
