Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of snapper, tarakihi and a couple of good kingies as well

Another week of wildly variable weather, with strong winds one day, calm and mild the next.

We called off a Thursday trip due to the bad forecast, which we could have got in, as the Northerly was very late coming, but hit hard when it did front up.

Saturday’s forecast was bad, but we took the punt, and after several hours of strong SW, it eased right  off . The fishing was good too, plenty of snapper, tarakihi and a couple of good kingies as well.

Sunday was a perfect day, no swell or wind, lovely conditions. The fishing was slower than Saturday,  a noticeable increase in current overnight was the reason for that. It did ease after the tide change though, and things subsequently picked up nicely.

And, we’re still catching skippies, both on the way out and returning to port, always a good perq.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
