Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of marlin hook-ups and sightings
7 February 2018

February got off to a slow start after an excellent January with enough easterly wind over the week to force cancellation of a few trips.

A bit frustrating, but part of the game.

I generally prefer the La Ninya effect, more settled, and a bit damper, but without the strong West/S.West of the El Nino pattern,  like most things though, it can come back to bite you.

It’s shaping up to be a good game fishing season, though. The N.easterlies bringing in the warm water and plenty of skippies and gamefish, with plenty of marlin hook-ups and sightings.

The snapper are also just starting to show up, another trend that should continue to improve, with the tarakihi still mainly in the deeper water but also getting hungrier.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • 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
