Fishing Reports

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

Tarakihi going well even though they have well finished spawning

2 weeks in a row where we’ve got 3 days in. It makes a pleasant change from the last couple of months.

The fishing’s continued to be pretty good too, with the tarakihi going well even though they have well finished spawning by now.

The deeper water is still more consistent, although Saturday’s trip got quite sloppy in the late morning and we headed back to the Middle Ground, out of the worst of the N.E. swell that was rolling in.

We had a reasonable run of tarakihi there, which was nice, hopefully they’ll start showing up in the shallower water before too much longer.

Things had settled by Sunday and it was another nice, productive day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
