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.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
