Fishing Reports

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

Plenty of tarakihi caught Thursday, and another good one on Saturday

It actually started to cool down after the S.E. on Thursday, so I guess autumn is on the way. The fishing has been still generally excellent, with plenty of tarakihi caught Thursday, and another good one on Saturday, also fishing  around Motiti.

Sunday was a  different story though, the S.E. wind had gone, but the current had picked up hugely, we gave a few spots outside Motiti a go, but it was basically unfishable, even 16oz sinkers skipping off the bottom. In closer was a non event, but after a lot of moving around we found a settled  patch of water in the lee of the island and ended up catching  quite a good variety of fish, trevally, tarakihi, red snapper and even a few legal snapper which look like they’re just starting to show up in the deeper water [over 40m]. So looking good for the next few weeks, [or months] hopefully.

 

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
