Fishing Reports

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

Skippies and marlin seen and hooked around the 1000m mark

It’s getting closer to summer conditions with skippies and marlin seen and hooked around the 1000m mark, still nothing much closer to Mayor though.

The deep water bottom fishing’s still productive,  the main variable being the amount of current from the North and East, with the better fishing occurring with less current.

Wind over current makes for harder fishing and we’ve had mainly Westerlies. Presumably the big highs to the North generate the current, but they  can change so much from day to day that it’s a  bit of a lottery. Keeps things interesting though, and even the slower days have still been productive.

We’ve fished inside Mayor, outside Motiti, and around the Labe with similar results in the last week, so getting a line in the water is the main thing.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • 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
