Fishing Reports

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

Murphys Law in action, again
12 May 2015

A quieter week for us. Thursday’s trip was a no win situation, the Met service was saying 25+knots , which looked as though it might be late coming, but  if we went it would blow, and if we cancelled it’d be late. So I canned, and of course it was late.  Murphy’s Law in action, again.

Saturday was a good day though. We went to the Pinns, and had a good selection come up, snapper, tarakihi, and a couple of good kingies, courtesy of the man with the jigging rod.  There were quite a lot of undersize[kingies] caught as well, a common sight in the last year or two.

The current was really severe though, becoming almost unfishable, so we went back to the 12mile, where there was no current apparent, and finished off the day with quite a lot of trevally and more snapper.

A pity that our Sunday charter cancelled on us.

    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,

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
