Fishing Reports

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

Nice weather and overnight fishing

A couple of tougher days again early in the week, with the snapper we’d been picking up moving on. So it was back to scratching around again and picking up  a few here and there.

Two overnighters helped the cause, as Mayor has picked up and the bottom fishing was good, with a good variety; snapper , red snapper, trevally and tarakihi as well as a 13kg kingy coming up.

Saturday was more of the same, being the nicest day of the year so far, good fishing, no  current or wind, lovely.

The drift fishing’s been a little slower, still bluenose and gemfish predominately. We tried some areas North of Mayor, but less sign, and only gemfish there. Still, a great eating fish though. Things are looking settled for the coming week, so here’s hoping.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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,

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
