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.



    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
