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

Nice settled weather

Nice settled weather from the beginning of the week, so we headed out towards the Pinns on Thursday,  and had good fishing initially. Unfortunately the dreaded barracuda showed up in large numbers, and once they’d found us, no matter how  much we shifted we couldn’t lose them. Lost plenty of gear though, so we went back to the 10mile and scratched up a few more. A bit disappointing, but the ‘cuda can be bad at this time of year.

Friday we headed in the opposite direction, around Pudney, not good, Brewis and the Astrolabe which were both steady but okay.

The sign was similar to the day before though, with  a lot of fish well off the bottom, generally indicating turbulent conditions, which put the fish, tarakihi in particular, off.

And another weekend cancelled by bad weather.

    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,

    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,
