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.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,

  • 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
