Fishing Reports

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

Picked up some good tarakihi to save the day

We got a midweek trip in around he Astrolabe, good conditions with no wind and a fluctuating current which meant a lot of reanchoring as we were swung off the marks all day. The fish were biting  though, and we even picked up 2 good kingys.

Saturday was similar, but the fishing was quite a bit harder everywhere. Frustrating when expectations are high.

It was a lot better than our overnighter though. One of the toughest we’ve had around Mayor. Hardly any reef fish, and the same with the Hapuku drifts.

We had taken the group out previously and had an excellent trip, cold comfort though.

A last gasp stop  at the Pinns paid off, thankfully, and we picked up some good tarakihi to save the day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
