Fishing Reports

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

Cudas being the jokers in the pack
6 December 2017

After some pretty average days, I  gave Town Pt one last go, with the same result, very little fish, so we won’t be trying there for some time.

Went back outside Motiti and got hammered by barracuda, but  finally found reasonable tarakihi in the deeper water.

Thursday was a half day, and still couldn’t get onto much in the shallower water so over the weekend worked around Motiti and had a couple of good days on tarakihi with some snapper also. Best of all, no barracuda.

The warmer currents coming  down normally make for unsettled fishing conditions this time of year, and it’s certainly the case at present.

Very much good one day tough the next, with the ‘cudas being the jokers in the pack.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    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
