Fishing Reports

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.

  • 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
