Fishing Reports

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

Females are feeding harder prior to spawning

The good fishing is continuing after the wet weather interruptions with  the tarakihi  going well, as they do at this time of year as the females are feeding harder prior to spawning.

We’re still doing well in the deeper water, with some good snapper catches as well, although they tend to be more hit and miss depending on conditions.

Conditions on Sunday meant we worked more around the Astrolabe and Brewis shoals, where the strong current forced us into the shallower water.

Still  a good day with quite a selection of species coming up including pink and grey maomao, porae, trevally, tarakihi, kingfish, more snapper than we normally see, and the usual small reef fish.

Quite an interesting day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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

    Tanya 

  • 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
