Fishing Reports

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

A good start to the week

The week started well with an overnighter to Mayor. Once again the evening fishing was not great. Heaps of flying fish and koheru around, so we had plenty of fresh bait for the next day.

Sunday had been a hard day everywhere, heaps of current and slow fishing. Monday turned out to be one of the best days of the year, great conditions, and  we caught all the fish we wanted in the 1st two hours, mainly  tarakihi, with snapper, porae and kingfish in the mix, so out to the deep water.

We missed out on the 1st drift, but on the rest we caught bluenose,[ no hapuku or bass], every time, which was unusual in that we’ve been catching consistently, but only on a couple of drifts before they’ve stopped feeding. So, home early.

Possibly the big current running for the previous couple of days got them a bit hungrier, but they were surely on the go on Monday.

Tuesday was another good day outside Motiti, with more snapper showing up with the tarakihi. The last for the week though, as the weather closed in for the weekend.

Just snotty enough to have to cancel, but we've had a pretty good run to date, so hopefully just a hiccup.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
