Fishing Reports

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

Excellent day on both tarakihi and snapper
20 April 2018

A quiet week but a settled weekend meant 2 good days of fishing for us.

Saturday we worked inside Motiti initially, for mainly small snapper, so moved around he Okaparus, and got a selection of species, snapper, kahawai, and quite a few blue and grey maomao.

When they tapered off we headed inside the Astrolabe and Brewis Shoals hoping to get onto the tarakihi, but not a lot of action there.

After pronouncing that the skippies must have moved on last week, we caught  some on the way home, so a premature call on that one.

We also picked up a few on our Sunday trip out to Mayor, and  had  an excellent day on both tarakihi and snapper, with one around 6kg being a highlight.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
