Fishing Reports

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

Good fishing though the swell was a bit more than expected
10 September 2018

A quiet week, just the Saturday in, but good fishing though the swell was a bit more than expected at 2/3metres.

A big lazy roll with next to no wind all day meant pretty nice conditions. Our first stop around Brewis saw some nice tarakihi initially, moving onto the Labe when they dropped off. Another good tarakihi bite therewith a few snapper and red snapper, plus the bonus of a small hapuku and a nice kingy. So a good day all around.

Unfortunately we had to cancel an overnighter when the forecast changed to 25 gusting 35knots

A shame as a couple of days earlier it had been looking good. Still, it’s been the best winter for us in a few years.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
