Fishing Reports

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

Effects of the big tides and moon

Quite a busy week, with the fishing continuing it’s volatile nature. Earlier in the week we continued in the 80m+ range with good results.

The Pinns and around Mayor mainly producing tarakihi and  red snapper.

Friday was a shocker though, a first in 18 years doing this, nothing takeable caught, some barracuda and scarpies  were  it. And 2 miniscule mackeral around Karewa.

Unbelievable.

So we worked around Motiti  the next few days, and did quite well, still mainly tarakihi, but the odd nice snapper among them.

The effects of the big tides and moon are the most of the reason, tidal currents, wind and swell all over the place. When it eases it’s ok, when they pick up it gets tough.

It’s summer though, hot and calm so good enough.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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.

  • 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
