Fishing Reports

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

Good trip early in the week, getting tougher along with the weather

Our Tuesday trip was another good one, with a mix of snapper, tarakihi and a few red snapper once again keeping everyone occupied.

An Easterly picked up in speed over the next few days, meaning our Friday trip was a bit sad. A mixture of N.E, East, and S.E. wind created a sloppy sea that forced us to stay behind Motiti until it steadied from the N.E.

There wasn’t much sign and the fishing reflected this with very little caught until we worked outside the Okaparus, and even then it was a short bite time before the snapper dried up.  A disappointing day, which carried over to the weekend with increasing wind meaning no further trips

  • 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
