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

  • 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

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
