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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    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

  • 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
