Fishing Reports

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

Positive start to October fishing
9 October 2013
0 0

October has started more positively than September ended, with some settled conditions over the last week.

Wednesday we took a public trip to Town Pt, where we had a nice day with a lot of good sized tarakihi coming up.

A half day on Thursday around the Middle Ground was a lot slower though, with a few fish in the 20m depths only.

Saturday, Town Pt went very well in the morning, then slowed enough that we headed outside Motiti, but much the same there.

Our overnighter had a good start, with an evening fish producing good sized snapper in quantity. The next day at Mayora bit slower, but still some nice tarakihi, plus a few bluenose and gemfish to top off some great settled weather.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
