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

  • 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

  • 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
