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

  • 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

    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
    Jo Davis
