Fishing Reports

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

Dolphins and a couple of sharks
27 November 2018
0 0

We went to the Pinns on Tuesday, had a reasonable day’s fishing and had dolphins and a couple of sharks, a blue and mako swimming round the boat, in addition to some albatrosses,  real bonus to some young Canadians on board.

We got our Friday overnighter in luckily, after several forecast changes. The evening fishing was steady, tarakihi and some good size snapper.

Saturday we stayed on the Western side of Mayor getting mainly tarakihi, tried the Eastern side when it slowed but not much better. A quick stop on the way home topped up the tarakihi nicely.

Rain and NE wind was bad enough to kill Sunday’s trip though.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • 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

    Tanya
