Fishing Reports

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

Back to a one day week as the changeable weather continues.

We got away on Saturday in excellent settled conditions and had a stop at the Pinns, but the current was very strong, so continued to Mayor, where it was still  strong but fishable with quite a good variety of fish around, porae; snapper, red snapper, tarakihi and pink maomao mainly.

The big tides after the new moon contribute to the current, I think.

Interesting that in summer the biggest tides are after the full moon, in winter they’re after the new one and are relatively even in spring and autumn. I wonder how many bite time charts factor that in?

    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
