Fishing Reports

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

Fishing was steady, mainly tarakihi, with snapper among them

November hasn’t seen much change from the last couple of months, unfortunately, still pretty unsettled weather.

We took a group out to Mayor on Friday, made sure to lash their kayaks down well with a bit of Northerly blowing, but not a bad trip out.

Saturday was windier, but the group booked were keen to do the trip regardless, so we doglegged our way to the Astrolabe via Pudney, which had been good previously, not so this time.

Inside and around the Labe was better though, and conditions improved as the day progressed and the sea took more shape.

Fishing was steady, mainly tarakihi, with snapper among them, so overall, not a bad day.

  • 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 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.

    Regards,
