Fishing Reports

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

Another better day for the fish than the fishers

Another quiet week with plenty of bad weather forcing more postponements.

We did get the Wednesday in, a nice day and the fishing started well  with snapper and tarakihi caught initially but the  current made itself enough of a nuisance that we ended up having to move in, as it picked up through the tide and ended up too much to cope with.

No shortage of fish in shallower, but most of them  were just that….. short.

Another better day for the fish than the fishers.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
