Fishing Reports

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

Hopefully February will see the changeover

Last week was a flashback to the winter. One good trip midweek, then a heap of bad weather forecast for the weekend.

The Metservice forecasts can be well out, but they got it right this time unfortunately.

We were taking a group out to Mayor camping, but Sunday’s big winds and swell put paid to that.

All the signs are that once the West and SW winds  ease things will pick up as you’d expect at this time of year. Lots of dolphins, jellyfish, sunfish  are being seen, but keep getting pushed offshore, same with the gamefish and tuna.

Snapper too, would normally be in close by now. So hopefully February will see the changeover.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
    Aaron

    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
    Jo Davis
