Fishing Reports

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

It seems like something's wrong if it isn't blowing about 30 knots

Well, spring has sprung, and it’s certainly bouncing off the wall or ionosphere or whatever. It seems like something’s wrong if it isn’t blowing about 30 knots.

We got the usual one day in last week, and that was Monday, quite a good day too, much the same as previously a good mix of snapper and tarakihi.

Still not  a lot of sign in close, but we’ve had a couple of reports that they might finally be starting to move in, which would be well due.

I prefer fishing the deeper water, more variety and generally size too, but it is nice to wind up from 20 or 30m just for a change and this is the time of year when they should be closer. Time will tell.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

    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,
