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

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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

    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,
