Fishing Reports

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.

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 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
