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

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Alan Chamberlain
