Fishing Reports

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

Good catches for most of the fishers on board

After Metservice forecasts that changed quite radically from one day to the next in the days leading up to Labour Day, the 30knot Notherlies, 25knot SE, SW, W, NW, all failed to materialize and it was a pretty settled weekend.

We went out  to the Pinns on the 1st two days and had reasonable fishing, a bit on the slow side on Sunday, so headed outside Motiti on Monday.

It was another seemingly slow day, but a couple of good spots made up for the nothing much ones , and we ended up with good catches for most of the fishers on board.

. Mainly tarakihi, with a couple of nice snapper as well, good condition and sized  fish,  they  took a bit of finding though. Keeping on keeping on seems to be the story at the moment

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,

  • 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
