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,

    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
