Fishing Reports

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

Good catches and a few limits caught
18 April 2017

Luckily the weather wasn’t quite as dire for Tauranga as predicted. Pretty ugly, but it did pass quickly.

There was still a fair NE swell running on Saturday,  quite fishable though, and we did  well, with good catches and  a few limits caught. We even got 4 skippies, the most all season

Monday was nicer still, more settled and continuing good catches of tarakihi, trevally and snapper.

The beginning of the season didn’t look  that promising, and it’s been a bit  different, everything seems later, continuing a  trend of the last few years, but overall it’s been a good one for us in terms of both fishable days and fish caught.

The next couple of months are generally good ones, so it’ll be nice if that trend continues.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
