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

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
