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.

    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,
