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.
