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.

  • 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

    Paul
