Fishing Reports

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

Barracuda caught, absolutely full of krill
17 June 2015

The week started well, with a trip out to the Pinns again. Still pretty consistent fishing out there, generally.

Tuesday’s group preferred to fish in close, so we did laps around the Middle Ground and picked up some reasonable tarakihi and a few snapper, but overall a fairly slow day.

We then did a half day trip, leaving about 3pm, and had another slow one- similar to the previous day, a few good tarakihi and the odd snapper.

We also had a barracuda caught, absolutely full of krill, which is something I can’t recall seeing at this time of year before.

They’re normally around in the summer, and with plankton, primary food for everything.

Possibly why the bottom fishing in close has been so fickle this season.

    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!!

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
