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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
