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

Saturdays northerly a bit too strong for us

Just the one day last week, with Saturday’s northerly a bit too strong for us to get out.

The Thursday was a good one though, with a good mix of fish, although we’ve been seeing a few more snapper, with the tarakihi tending to be a bit fussier now that most of the females have spawned now.

We should be starting to see them showing up in the shallower water from now on. A couple of years ago it was full on but  last year was a different  story, less action right through the season in close. The deeper water and Mayor were consistently good though and as long as we’re picking them up from somewhere, that’s the main thing.

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

  • 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
