Fishing Reports

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

Nice pannie snapper, mostly between 32 and 36cm

We were lucky to get a break in the weather to get in a stag do on the Saturday. We started the day with tough conditions with some North Easterly wind and swell. The fishing was equally tough for the first part of the morning, with only 2 Tarakihi onboard by 11 o’clock.

After some perseverance we managed to get onto a nice school of fish, which turned out to be some nice pannie snapper. Mostly between 32 and 36cm. They came up in good numbers for about 45 minutes, at which point the Tarakihi took over, and we caught nice fish steadily until it was time to head home. Had to cancel Sundays trip due to some big weather, but was a good chance to rest up after a productive one on Saturday. Bring on some more settled weather!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
