Fishing Reports

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

Skill level had to be up
16 July 2018

We got the Friday in, nice conditions but a lot of NW current running meant the skill level had to be up a bit compared to a lot of the days we’ve had.

The more experienced fishers did well, first timers and newbies less so.

Tarakihi often don’t fight the hook, but go with it, so you need to be watching the rod tip for movement, not just sit there expecting to feel  a sharklike bite.

The first ones the hardest, but once tuned in, it’s a bit easier.

Saturday was marginal, a sloppy N/NE  swell, so we headed towards  Astrolabe, which meant a more comfortable trip home. Pleasantly surprised to find the tarakihi going quite hard, so we did ok then headed home when they eased off. A bonus day for a keen crew.

  • 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

    Tanya
