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

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

  • 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

    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

  • 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
