Fishing Reports

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
0 0

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • 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
