Fishing Reports

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

Astrolabe and its current exclusion zone....

Well, the fishing side of things is still pretty much a non event but I was talking to my mate Russ, who went out to dive on what’s left of the Rena.

It’s all pretty well covered with weed and marine life in all it’s variety now, not particularly amazing considering it’s been nearly 5 years since it hit the Astrolabe.

So hopefully we might see the 2NM exclusion zone removed before next season.

Certainly it’s well overdue, seeing as the whole reef is less than ½ a mile across, and the initial reason was the salvers needing the area to themselves, as much to prevent people seeing their glacial speed as much as for safety concerns, from what we observed anyway.

Here’s hoping.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
