Fishing Reports

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

Lots of westerly winds lately, but all fishable, and good catches

Lots of  westerly winds lately, but all fishable, and good catches,  mainly in the deeper water.

A mid week overnighter saw some strange currents, swinging 180* from North to South  in a couple of miles of steaming, which made for interesting anchoring.

Mayor was fishing well though, with good variety and size, including up to 4kg snapper, trevally, tarakihi etc. The evening fish also was good, which helps take the pressure off.

More bottom fishing trips over the next few days were similar, good days, with Sunday being the only exception, the SW predicted arrived a few hours early and slowed things considerably, but an upbeat crew enjoyed the day regardless, which is always good to see.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • 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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

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

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
