Fishing Reports

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

Forecast was a bit out

After a reasonable day on Sunday, we expected Monday to be more of the same, but the forecast was a bit out [!!] and the 30+kn of Southerly changed that.

We went behind Motiti, and after a few misses got onto some good snapper in close. The wind dropped and it ended up calm and a lovely day.

The fishing stayed hard all week, good conditions and better in the deeper water , but slow.

Sunday we tried outside the Mt from 25/55m, uniformly terrible.

Finally tried Pudney,  as a last gasp and got enough snapper, tarakihi, and red snapper to save the day, not one for the record books though.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
