Fishing Reports

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

Merry Christmas!

The final report before Christmas and nothing dramatic has happened in the last week. Mainly fishable weather, with the catches still ok in the deeper water, but the offshore winds  keeping the shallower water on the slow side.

We still aren’t seeing any skippies on the lures after it looked encouraging  a fortnight ago, with kahawai and dolphin schools being regularly seen.

What is noticeable is the amount of smaller fish seen and caught [and released ], so maybe the bigger ones are chilling out for the moment.

So,  thanks to the people who’ve fished with us through the year, our regulars in particular,  have a good Christmas and we’ll see you again in due course.

    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,

  • 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
