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.


  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
