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.
