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

Easing the winter blues
21 July 2014
0 0

A few more sunny days and a good days fishing outside Motiti eased the winter blues a little.

The areas we’d been working previously produced a few tarakihi then eased off, so after a couple of moves we tried a bit further East.

The current, which had been quite stiff, dropped an hour or two after the tide change, and as it did, we started getting quite a lot of snapper, along with good quantities of tarakihi.

The tarakihi are well into spawning now, and they tend to be fussier with their feeding once it’s over, still there, but not as motivated if conditions aren’t to their liking.

Theoretically they should be moving into shallower water now, but we’ve seen no evidence of it, so we’ll stay deep until things change.

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
    Jo Davis

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
