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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,

  • 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
    Aaron
