Fishing Reports

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

Good run of weather continues

We’ve had another busy week as the good run of weather continues. The fishing continues to be quite variable, but overall, not too bad, with the deeper water more consistent.

One thing that’s on the increase is the amount of barracuda around. It is normal for this time of year, but it’s always a pain to see them working their usual magic on the gear. They surely can give hooks and sinkers a snipping time, and they’re in both the shallow and deeper water at present.

All part of the fun though.

Even though we’ve seen plenty of box jellyfish around, the water temperature’s still on the low side, so we haven’t seen as much fish in close as we normally would, partly explaining why the sea lettuce is so thick at present, still one decent N/NE blow could change that quickly.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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
