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

Niwas saying warmer and milder than it has been

Ahhh. A few days of [mostly] calm weather make for a happier group of fisherfolk.

We’re still getting more consistency in the deeper water, with a good mix of species, including a couple of legal kingfish and a few snapper over 10lb as well as tarakihi and trevally.

We’re also still getting skippies and have had a couple of pods of dolphin playing around the boat, so a bit of entertainment  on the way as well.

It’s going to be interesting seeing what eventuates this winter, Niwa’s saying warmer and milder than it has been, which would be nice if it comes to fruition, but even a couple of weeks of settled weather seems special after the volatility of the last few months.

    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,
