Fishing Reports

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

October continues to have excellent weather and the fishing’s been  good too.

We’ve continued working around Motiti, with the fish anywhere between 50 and 80m. Two good days midweek with mainly tarakihi coming up.

Saturday had too much SE wind but it was calm and settled by Sunday, which fished well initially, then slowed up, so we went to my never fail spot, where, naturally, we barely caught a fish. We then came back to a bit of foul we’d run over with some sign on it and ended up with a heap of tarakihi, red snapper, 2 legal kingies and  a 6/7kg snapper, which was caught by a 10 year old.

So, pretty good and reconfirming that inconsistency is the only constant with fishing.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • 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

    Paul
