Fishing Reports

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

Nice weather through the week, but turning wet and windy for the weekend

A little déjà vu here, as yet again nice weather through the week, but turning wet and windy for the weekend. However, we managed to get a couple of days in midweek. Still good fishing too, with mainly tarakihi, also some snapper and golden snapper.

Thursday there was a bit more current and more shifting to find the fish, eventually getting onto them with a lot more snapper coming up.

A bit of a surprise really, because they’d dropped off a lot in the last week or two.

Possibly the current that slowed down the tarakihi had the opposite effect with them.

We also saw more perch and pink maomao than normal, maybe for the same reason.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

    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
