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.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
