Fishing Reports

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

Sharks, Kingies, and some good overnighters despite the weather
27 June 2014

More average weather saw another quiet week, but we got our postponed overnighter away and had an excellent evening fish, with four kingies in the 15kg range coming up as well as tarakihi , snapper, porae and pink maomao.

The morning fishing was also good, and the drift fishing, while interesting, wasn’t very productive. What looked like initially being a big bass soon started to look more like a shark. It turned out to be a 3metre plus bronze whaler, dragged up from over 300m and not very happy. After getting it to the surface a few times it finally gave the  boat a tailslap, busted the line and exited . Quite exciting. The video should be good viewing.

We did a few more drifts, had another good shark on for a while, but  he chomped the line , nothing else came up , so we did a bottom fish for a few snapper and that was it.

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 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
