Fishing Reports

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

Better days than we could have hoped for

The strong winds prevailed again last week, but we had a busy weekend, which was a pleasant change

We started with a day trip on Friday where we went to Town Pt for a change. Nothing much down there so we went out to the Eastern side of Motiti and did quite well, even saw a couple of whales spouting.

We then dropped a school group off at Mayor that night, a bit of a rolly trip with the Westerly blowing but good conditions at the island.

Saturday and Sunday we continued going on the lee side of Motiti. The fishing was consistent, and with the effects of the winds minimised, they were better days than we could have hoped for.

Interestingly, with all the wind, there was still a strong Easterly current running, normally the wind will dictate current direction, especially after couple of days.

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,

  • 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
