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

  • 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
