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.

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 Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
