Fishing Reports

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

An excellent finish to a fairly rough week

We had a bit of a short week due to the weather and swell running, but our public day Sunday was good.

We started in close and were getting some nice snapper, but just too many kahawai. A few are fine, but the amount of tangles they create wears thin fairly quickly.

We went to some of our deeper marks, which generally don’t hold them, but they were even worse there.

Finally ended up around Motiti  where we got a lot of snapper, quite a few trevally and the odd kahawai. Much better!

Monday  we started inside the Middle Ground outside Omanu and towards Papamoa, but nothing much happened there, so it was back to Motiti for another good day on the snapper and trevally.

We decided to try a bit deeper for tarakihi, where the current was more in evidence. It took a few resets, but we ended up doing quite well on them also.

The current also brought the barracuda, but not too badly, only 4/5 sets of gear lost to the lovelies.

So, an excellent finish to a fairly rough week.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
     

  • 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

    Tanya
