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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
