Fishing Reports

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

Fish ticking along steadily

We worked a few different areas last week, with reasonable outcomes on the various trips.

Went to the Pinns on Tuesday and had a good easy day, didn’t have to move much due to shifting currents and wind, and the fish ticked along steadily, mainly tarakihi, with a fair amount of small kingies coming up.  In fact, we’ve caught more rat kingies in the last week or two than I’ve seen before. They’re often in the shallow water outside the Mt, but lately they’ve been in the middle ground, the pins, outside and inside Motiti, and all around the 50 to 60cm mark, a bit frustrating because they cause more tangles than the big ones, which mainly fight more straight up and down.

The other trips we worked the middle ground,  which was ok, the snapper have showed up in shallower water, so while not red hot, we found  enough to keep things interesting.

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
