Fishing Reports

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

The El Nino predicted seems to come and go

After the encouraging signs from last weekend, we thought Town Pt would be well worth a look,  It was not. We barely caught a couple of tiny snapper, so headed outside Motiti and ended up doing pretty well.

Feeling confident, we headed back out there on Saturday, unfortunately lightning didn’t strike twice, a lot harder day.

Then back out to Mayor on an  overnighter, but wind, current, and swell made the evening fish too aggravating to persist with.

The next day started hard, but we ended up with a good tally of a wide variety of fish. Snapper, tarakihi, trevally, porae, red snapper and kingfish  the more appreciated of them.

The El Nino predicted seems to come and go, a week of Westerlies, then a week of Easterlies which is the La Ninya pattern. Even the fish seem confused.

  • 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
