Fishing Reports

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

Both the bottom fishing and the Hapuku fishing were excellent last weekend

We were hoping that the week of NE winds and rain would bring the fish and warmer water down, and that seems to have happened.

Both the bottom fishing and the Hapuku fishing were excellent last weekend, and it seemed to be pretty general with most areas having good catches.

We had a couple of overnighters around Mayor, with good quantities of snapper showing up in addition to the tarakihi, and bluenose and gemfish in the deeper water.

Also saw some schools of skipjack and got a few of them[less 1 to a mako], big fish too, so hopefully this will continue for some time, a settled autumn would be a bonus for the year.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

    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.

Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

    Lynne.
