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

The game fishing continues to be a standout season

We’ve been bopping around trying to find where the tarakihi  have gone since the cyclone slid past a couple of weeks ago.

The snapper have been good in most places we’ve tried, but tarakihi  not so much.

We went out  to the Pinns on Tuesday , mainly snapper again, then came back to shallower water  and did pick up some  tarakihi there.

A day trip around Motiti on Saturday was more of the same.

An evening fish on the way to Mayor saw us have a good run on the snapper until after dark, and on Sunday we finally got onto tarakihi, good size and condition, with quite a few getting close to spawning. A 3m odd Mako, enjoyed a few of them too, really good to see, a beautiful animal.

The game fishing continues to be a standout season, with more tagging and landing of mainly  striped marlin and mahimahi over the weekend.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

  • 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
