Fishing Reports

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

Heaps of action on the surface

There’s been a fair bit of wind around lately, not unusual for October, but temperatures are rising and daylight saving helps too.

However, after having a good, settled week, our trip on Friday with a team of young rugby players from Perth,   saw the only wet day of the week, and the fishing was slow as well.  A bit frustrating.

Saturday was back to being good, and we had a good start to the day, tarakihi going hard initially, but then slowing down quite a bit.

Heaps of action on the surface too, kahawai feeding on little fish and jelly around the boat, box jellyfish, a couple of schools of kingfish just under the boat, all good signs for the summer.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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,
