Fishing Reports

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

Nice size Tarakihi, around the 3-5 lb mark

Still some pretty unsettled weather happening, but we’re getting a reasonable amount of days in.

The tarakihi are continuing to play hard to get, but we’re seeing more snapper show up, more in the deeper water than inshore. Nice size fish, around the 3-5 lb mark.

Likewise with the drift fishing, we’re now seeing more gemfish along with the bluenose and occasional bass and Hapuku, and have to say they’re one of the nicest eating fish in the sea.

Sunday, we noticed a lot less current than we’ve been having, so hopefully if it continues to ease we’ll see a bit more action in general from the fishy world.

    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 there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
