Fishing Reports

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

Good amounts of fish around, but its not easy fishing yet
12 December 2018

A busy but volatile week weatherwise, with rain, sunshine, cloud, and wind from every direction a daily occurrence. Lots of day to day current shifts don’t make it any more straightforward either

The fishing’s reflected it, with mostly reasonable catches but  short bite times and frequent shifts necessary to keep things ticking along.

There’s good amounts of fish around, but it’s not easy fishing yet.

We’ve been to a lot of different depths and areas, including an evening fish, and it’s a similar story everywhere. Catch a few, move, catch some more, move etc, etc.

It will be interesting seeing what develops once conditions, hopefully, settle down  a bit more. Could be a good one.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,
     
    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,
