Evening Charters

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

Evening to Night Fishing in Tauranga for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally

Evening fishing is a perfect way to spend a warm summer’s night fishing for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally, as well as a range of other reef fish.

Evening to Night fishing is perfect for those who can’t get out fishing during the day due to work constraints but can make it out for the evening.

From January through to May/June is the perfect time for evening fishing, as the Snapper tend to move into the shallower waters around Karewa and the middle ground between Motiti and Mount Maunganui.

The fishing is typically shallower than our day fishing trips, ranging anywhere from 15m – 50m, depending on the moon, tidal flows, and weather conditions.

The tackle used is generally ledger rigs with 3/0 hooks and a 5oz – 12oz sinker depending on the depth of water being fished. Squid, tua tua and skip jack tuna are usually the most successful baits for the evening fishing trips, with mullet, pilchards and octopus also accounting for their fair share of fish.

If you are looking for a night fish for your group feel free to contact us for more information.

Evening or night fishing for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally is an excellent way to get out fishing after work, to catch a nice feed of fish. Perfect for those summer months when the Snapper are predominant in the shallow water.

If you are on your own and would like to join a group, keep an eye on our calendar for any Public Evening Trips.

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.

  • 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

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
