Fishing Reports

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

It's certainly not dull at present, frustrating sometimes though

Another week of  ups and downs with the fishing We went outside Motiti where we’ve done quite well in the past but had a  slow day, finally getting onto fish on the Western end.

Saturday we went to the Pinns, a beautiful day and good fishing, with big trevally, tarakihi, and red snapper and snapper going well.

Sunday we went back out, conditions good but not quite as nice as  Saturday, and it was really hard. The wind picked up,  so we tried an alternative mark in a bit closer , and luckily it paid off, with a good hard hit of tarakihi which made the day. It’s certainly not dull at present, frustrating sometimes though.

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,

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.
