Fishing Reports

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

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.

  • 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
