Fishing Reports

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

Good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures

Only a couple of days last week, the weather’s getting more variable now.

We went out Tuesday and had another good day with another good mix of tarakihi and snapper, and yet again, good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures.

We’ve caught more of them in the last few trips than over the whole of the summer. Although the South and SWesterlies coming up will probably push them back to the tropics.

Too much SW for the Saturday, but we got the Sunday in. A bit sloppier than forecasted, the wind didn’t really drop like the forecast predicted so the Metservice were a bit out there. But generally their forecasting has been quite a bit better.

They went through a long period where they were very accurate, then got quite bad for the last few years, so hopefully they’ll continue to be on the money.

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,

    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
