Fishing Reports

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

November has been a quantum improvement

November has been a quantum improvement on the last couple of months weatherwise, barely a day that hasn’t been fishable.

The fishing’s continued to be patchy, with some good catches coming up for some , and a bit slow for others.

The interesting thing has been there appears to be no real rhyme or reason for the variation.

One person will be doing well with squid, next one not, same with tuatuas, bonito etc. Similar gear, hook size, sinkers, but varying results.

It’s not just the ability of the fisher, although that helps, it really is the luck of the day to a large extent.

We’ve had a variety of cross currents and wind shifts which might be some of the reason, but at the end of the day, we’re on the top, they’re on the bottom and what goes on in between is pretty much a mystery.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
