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.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
