Fishing Reports

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

Good catches of mainly 33/38 cm snapper

Well, the snapper have shown up in the shallower water inside Motiti and around the Okaparus. We’ve had some good catches of mainly 33/38 cm fish, in good condition, not too surprising given the amount of food in the water.

The only downside is we’ve had some strong currents, and in typical snapper behaviour they’re here one day, gone the next. It’s well worth giving any fish sign, even on flat mud/sand bottom a go, because if they’re on the bite, they’re going hard.

Tarakihi also are better in the deeper water, so a few more options available.

Likewise the game fishing continues to be good, also more skippies being caught, around the Penguins in particular.

So all in all, looking really positive.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • 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
