Fishing Reports

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

Fishing still steady

More generally good weather last week, with the fishing still steady.

A midweek trip to the Pinnacles saw mainly tarakihi coming up, but  things slowed down and moving back to the shallower water brought more tarakihi, but also a lot of small snapper.

A half day with Rangiora High School rugby players around the Middle Ground meant more little snapper, but  there were some well legal, up to 3kg+ amongst them, plus the usual trevally and rat[small]  kingies, an entertaining afternoon for the boys.

Saturday was similar, but with less of the sizable ones, so we ended up outside Motiti and had  a  good hit on the tarakihi initially, not as long as we’d like, alas.

Sunday was back to the Pinns, some more good tarakihi, but also a good number of skipjack on the lures, a nice  bonus,  we haven’t had that many this season.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
