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

Fishing good, despite cyclone Lusi
19 March 2014

The week was dominated by the news that a cyclone was heading down from the tropics. Huge drama, people buying out supermarkets in preparation for the event. It all seemed a bit over the top, given that it was supposed to hit on Saturday, blow over by Sunday and be fine by  Monday.

Which it was, the Metservice got that right more or less.

So, we  cancelled the weekends trips, naturally, which was a pity, as we’d had good weather and fishing up to then, with an overnighter and day trip both catching a good variety of fish.

Mayor and the deeper reefs are producing well, the drift fishing was a bit slower, although we still got bluenose and gemfish, just a bit off the bite compared to recent trips.

    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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
