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

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.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    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,
