Fishing Reports

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

Fish Moving Day to Day
23 October 2013

Another couple of days out last week, and it was down to town Pt again, on the basis of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it".

The Friday was steady fishing, no bursts of action, ticking along steadily on the tarakihi, although a couple of good john dory that Colin pulled up were a nice bonus.

Saturday was initially slower, and we covered  more ground than Friday, with the previous days marks not really doing it. We  gave one mark a go that had a little sign on it, and after a while they came on strongly, which made the day.

It's surprising just how much the fish move around an area from day to day, and it pays to  keep looking and trying different spots rather than assume that because they weren't there yesterday they won't be today.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

  • 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
