Fishing Reports

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

Half day charter with the NZ sevens
11 May 2016
0 0

Monday started with a half day charter with the NZ sevens. A bit of a worry after a tough Sunday. Luckily we ran over a bit of sign on the way out and ended up with a good haul of snapper, trevally and kahawai, even a legal kingy.

Tried it again on Thursday, nothing. We worked around the Astrolabe, Brewis, and the Okaparus but pretty hard everywhere.

Saturday we stopped at a few spots before Motiti, but ended up in the deeper water outside the island and started getting tarakihi. A big improvement on the shallow water.

Sunday, it was straight to the deep, and a good consistent day. 

There's still no real pattern to the fishing, very much day to day, it's almost like if you have a good hit one day, go somewhere else the next.

Which is a lot easier said than done.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
