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

More settled weather pattern, in between the odd strong blow
27 May 2014

A frustrating week, nice weather and conditions but not enough people to go, and the trip we had on Saturday we had to postpone due to it being the roughest day of the week.

A pity, as the fishing has been good, and the conditions generally excellent.

The weather pattern seems to be altering to more settled, in between the odd strong blow.

It's a pattern we haven't seen for some years, some I'm hoping that it persists for a while- a few years would be good, ho ho.

We used to do a lot of winter trips, but the past 10 years or so have seen them fade away due mainly to the unrelenting bad weather. A few more of these calm, frosty days might see a revival of interest.

    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.
