Fishing Reports

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

Supermoon having quite an effect on the tides and currents

Last week was an interesting  one, with the supermoon having quite an effect on the tides and currents.

We worked around Motiti early in the week and while the Tuesday was hard we still had reasonable results but the Thursday was diabolical, outside Motiti was quite unfishable, with swell and current completely opposite each other and the lines were running forward  at a 45*angle.

It was more settled inside the island but very little fish,  some snapper, tarakihi and more blue cod than usual.

Saturday we headed in the opposite direction, and had a good morning around  the Pinns, quietening off after lunch.

Sunday we went there again, but slow and hard fishing so out  to Mayor which was a bit better, with red snapper the main catch.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
