Fishing Reports

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

Ground swell had picked up since Sunday...

Another abbreviated week, with just the one day on Tuesday and it was a stinker too. We had a late start, but the forecast was light variable, going 10kn S.W., sounded good.

As we went through the entrance, the water was badly discoloured, looking like a ground swell had picked up since Sunday.

The sign was bad when we got to our 1st marks, the wind was 20+kn and a very sloppy sea. Fishing was a non event , forcing us in behind Motiti where it was just as bad.

Then, the wind dropped away, conditions improved, and we still caught next to no fish. Not one for the archives.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
