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

  • 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

    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
