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

Tarakihi and snapper are around, but not very hungry

The weather is now on the improve, which is good to see, but the fishing over the last few days has slowed up a bit.

We’ve been trying  a variety of different areas and both of the main species, tarakihi and snapper, are around, but not very hungry.

There’s been areas of discoloured water, quite black looking and I think it is likely caused by phytoplankton or similar, which they do eat, along with krill. Quite often shows up around now, and is as likely to be the reason as not.

We tend to forget that not everything they eat is near the bottom and certainly we’ve been seeing a lot of fish sign midwater with no obvious tide or current to explain it. So, we’ll see what eventuates.

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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
