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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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,
