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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
