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

Beautiful day, flat calm, no current and very good reef fishing

Well, after a lot of bad weather, mainly on the weekends, of course, we finally got a Saturday in. It was a beautiful day, flat calm, no current and very good reef fishing.

We started off in the deeper water, 80 to 85m and went  well on snapper and tarakihi, even got a legal kingy, but it slowed down around midday so we tried in a bit closer and did even better with the tarakihi, with the odd  legal snapper among them.

I mentioned getting a barracuda full of krill a few weeks ago, and we saw a big clump of them[krill] drift by while we were anchored. Given that they’re normally only seen in the warmest months of summer, very unusual indeed.

 I see the scientists now reckon there’s a mini ice age on the way in the next 15 years, I wonder what effect that’ll have on global warming

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 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
