Fishing Reports

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

Bigger snapper seem to be camped in the deeper water

Another one day week for us, with Saturday being the one.

We stayed in a bit closer than we have been, and worked in the 50/60m depths. We decided against going any deeper as there was enough easterly breeze to make it doubtful there’d be any gains in doing so.

Plus, it was still good fishing, mainly tarakihi, as  the bigger snapper seem to be camped in the deeper water, with the smaller ones shallower.

The forecast looked snotty for Sunday, so we flagged it. Naturally it looked ok Sunday morning, but it often does when you’re not out in it.  So discretion was the call for the day.

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

  • 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
