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

Good Sunday at the Pinnacles

We had the Tauranga Boys High pupils and teachers last week, and their 3 days summed up the fishing at present. First day was ok, second  good, third bad.  Conditions were slightly worse on Wednesday, but the fish, for no obvious reason, were right off the bite.

 Saturday, we went outside Motiti and had another toughy, no shortage of sign, but they were biting for a very short time. A couple of pods of dolphin, the first ones we've seen this season, came up and played around the boat , so that was a bonus, and the conditions were excellent also.

A bit frustrating from my point of view,  but you can't make them bite when they don't want to, unfortunately.

Sunday we tried the Pinnacles and thankfully had  a good day, lots of current, but the tarakihi, good sized fish too, went well for most of the day.

We had a few barracuda come up, all of them were full of krill, which possibly is some of the reason the fish are fussy. They're just not that hungry.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
