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

Good big kingfish, and nice bottom fishing
4 June 2014

Just enough S.Easterlies around last week to cause a few cancellations over the weekend. It can be a frustrating wind because it’s often quite calm along the coastline, but once you get 3/4 miles offshore  becomes very uncomfortable.

Our midweek overnighter was calm though, and the evening fishing was good,  with a good mix of fish, including another good big kingfish,-they’ve been another species that we’ve seen a lot more of recently. It took a while to get onto them though, there was a lot of S.E. current, a precursor to the wind that followed in the next few days.

It had picked up a bit more by the morning, and apart from  a few more tarakihi and snapper first thing, the Hapuku fishing was a non event. A N.W. wind  over the increasing S.E. current meant sloppy conditions and no fish, and further bottom fishing also brought up next to nothing. Still, far from  a bad trip overall, and the weather is still mainly clear, and settling again.

    Di Watts

  • 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
