Fishing Reports

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

Mayor has been fishing well, with some big porae

Another busy week with several day reef trips and a couple of overnighters and all of them pretty good fishing.

Mainly tarakihi during the day, with some snapper, red snapper and trevally among them, but the evening fishing has seen a lot more snapper coming on board and they’ve now shown  up in the shallower water

Mayor has been fishing well,  with some big porae, and a nice kingfish of around 25lb caught in addition to  the snapper, tarakihi etc.

The skippies are still quite sparse, with even the game fishing boats not catching many, although they are picking up a  few marlin. It will be interesting to see if  they stick around for as  long as they did last year.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

    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

  • 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
