Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of Keepers

We had an overnighter Friday/Saturday, the wind had eased and not a bad forecast, but with more swell running than we’d expected once we got out to Mayor.

The evening fishing was ok, 1 decent kingy, some snapper and tarakihi and quite a lot of jack mackeral, so no shortage of bait.

Saturday was steady, nothing really exciting, but the day was nice, the swell dropped away, all in all  a good trip.

Sunday we tried the Pinns, but they were a bit off , and we ended up doing better in the shallower water, with snapper and tarakihi  coming up.

Quite a lot of smaller fish among them, but plenty of keepers as well.

    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, 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
