Fishing Reports

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

Back in the water!

Well, after what seems like an eternity, we finally went back in the water at the weekend.

The timing seems good, as we’ve seen a real increase in temperatures, the days are looking better  and the phone’s been ringing as well.

We’ve heard from a few of the locals that there’s  a bit more fish activity some of the beach fishermen and down towards Maketu are seeing tarakihi and snapper in the shallower water so we’ll be checking that out, as well as doing some of the deeper spots we were doing ok at.

Hopefully the El Nino effect is minimal for the season, it hasn’t been too dominant recently, so it’d be good if the Met Service got it wrong.


  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks

  • 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.
