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

Strong winds giving things a good stir up
21 January 2014

We started last week with a bluenose trip, but the 15knot SW forecast ended up about 30+. We had a good start, but as the wind picked up the fishing went down, still, a reasonable day, with a small bass  and some gemfish in the mix.

A good keen group on Friday saw us out in even stronger wind, but staying close made conditions ok, not so much for the fishing,  kahawai and a legal kingy being most of the catch.

The weekend was back to good conditions but slow fishing, although a trip to the 80m on Sunday was more productive. The continuing strong but erratic currents are the main problem.

A pity the coming blow isn’t a bit stronger, as a good stir up would be beneficial.

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,
