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

Some strong SE

Some strong SE meant another short week, so Sunday was the day.

After some slower fishing in deeper water, I thought Town Pt was worth a look, but after 4/5 stops for nothing much, we headed outside Motiti.

A couple more average stops and we were back around 80m where we got onto tarakihi, plus some nice snapper and golden snapper as well.

So, it ended up a pretty good day, good weather and conditions topped it off.

Still not too keen on the shallower water at present  though.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
