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 Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
