Fishing Reports

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

Bigger females are well into spawning now

Another short week, with a good day’s fishing on the Monday and the weather closing in over the weekend for more postponed trips.

The snapper aren’t around in the same quantities they were a few weeks ago, but still some nice fish being caught.

The tarakihi are still going well. The bigger females are well into spawning now, and will be for the next month or so.

We’ve also been seeing a fair amount of kingies coming up, a frustrating amount of them going about 72 to 74 cm, but the odd well legal one among them.

It’s been a good winter compared to the last few years, mainly settled with the odd good blow coming through, then settling again.

A pity the timing generally sees the blows coming through on the weekends.

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
