Fishing Reports

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

Large tarakihi from an area East of the Okaparu
9 September 2014
0 0

Still fairly static as far as the bottom fishing goes, with no evidence of anything much in the shallow water yet, apart from some very small snapper that is.

We did pull some large tarakihi from an area  East of the Okaparus in around 40m, but not enough to spend too long there, so the deeper water is still the best bet at the moment.

Working around Brewis shoals was more of the same, with some small  snapper and not much else, although we struck a school of red snapper that went quite hard while they were around, so that bumped the tallies up nicely.

Talking to a friend on Sunday, and he was saying that the water temp out wide is over 16* so with the predominating easterlies bringing in the warmer water we might see a bit more action in shallow soon.

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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
