Fishing Reports

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

Really nice day in all respects

A bit better week weatherwise and our first Hapuku trip in a while as well.

And a really nice day in all respects. We got a heap of skippies on the way out, which are always good as bait then got a few  nice Hapuku on the first drift, albeit with a decent tangle as well.

Nothing much on the next couple, so we went a bit deeper and got a  good selection of bluenose and gemfish on the last few drifts. No wind and an easy trip home to top off the day.

Saturday was another settled day but everything was slower, , less birds and dolphins sighted, only 1 skippy on the lures, did some kingfish jigging but only got some kahawai, finished up ok with the bottom fishing with good tarakihi and a few snapper, which are just starting to show up in better numbers.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers
