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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
