Fishing Reports

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

Mainly tarakihi with a few odds and sods thrown in

We headed out on Thursday towards the Labe and had another good day with a good tally of fish caught, mainly tarakihi with  a few odds and sods thrown in

Most of the fishers were regulars, so an  easy day and home early to boot.

I was expecting a similar day to Thursday, quite glassy as we went through the entrance, a little bit more swell but nothing of note. Unfortunately the wind was S.E., not the light S.W. predicted, so it was pretty snotty at our 1st stop, where we caught a few, but things deteriorated more, forcing us into the middle ground where after 4 stops we had 1 more tarakihi and a blue cod. So we made the best of it, called it a ½ day, refunded some money,  and went home.

Not the sort of early day I’d been hoping for.

 

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

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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.
