Fishing Reports

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

Another great week

Another great week with similar results to the preceding week.

The game fishing continues the run of marlin being caught and tagged, while the bottom and reef fishing was still on the slow side in both the shallow and deeper water.

On our last day out however, after planning to work the middle ground for the day, the sign and catch rate were non existent so we went outside Motiti and  actually found some good sign, the best looking in quite a while.

Even more encouraging, we caught good quantities of tarakihi  that were on the bite.

It’s been a bit of a different season all around this year, maybe now it will start to get a bit closer to the norm.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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,
