Fishing Reports

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

Tarakihi, snapper and bigger than normal red snapper
28 April 2015
0 0

The fishing in the deeper water is still going well, but it’s been quite slow in the midrange areas, between 20 to 50m.

Midweek outside Motiti we had a good selection of tarakihi, snapper and bigger than normal red snapper [which are require respectful handling, head plates and scales will both slice fingers like razors, towels are recommended].  They’re good eating, and great in the smoker.

Normally, this time of year has some of the best fishing, but the conditions have been unsettled in the last week or two. We’re seeing more of the dreaded wind over current , which always makes things tougher.

Generally the current follows the wind, but when they go out of sync., it reflects in the fishing. It normally doesn’t last for long but frustrating when it does.

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
