Fishing Reports

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

Our excellent summer continues!

Our excellent summer continues, with the game fishing in particular, being exceptional. There’d have to be  more marlin, black, blue and striped caught than in the last 10 years. Yellowfin tuna also,  have made a comeback and it will be interesting to see what the next few years bring.

The bottom fishing has continued to be good, inconsistent, but with plenty of fish there when they feel hungry.

We had a good little hit of snapper in one spot last week, looks like they’re close to showing up in more numbers, while the tarakihi bop along when it suits them.

Mayor’s still good, we even saw a freejumping  mahimahi on Saturday while hapuku fishing. Great conditions and yet again persistence is the thing, often just one or two drifts doing the business. Quite a good selection though, bluenose , gemfish, hapuku and a bass caught.

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
