Fishing Reports

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

Got another midweek trip in, weekend was too snotty to go
1 August 2016

Well, we finally got another midweek trip in. It was a bit much to hope for the weekend as well, and, as per usual, it was too snotty to go.

So, anyway, the fishing was as good as it has been every time we’ve been able to get a day in.

Not too much swell or current and the fish were biting well for most of the time we were out.

Still predominately tarakihi, with a legal kingy and a couple of just unders in the mix as well as a few snapper, red snapper and a couple of trevally.

We’re all hoping that things start to pick up a bit in August, although that’s far from guaranteed.

    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,

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
