Fishing Reports

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

The snapper possibly in closer to the beach

We had a big N.E. swell pounding in for most of last week, and it hardened up the fishing a bit. It was between 2 and 4 metres and while we didn’t do too badly, it was  back to a lot of shifting to get onto anything much. The snapper we were catching have moved on, possibly in closer to the beach from what we’ve heard, but  we had little luck when we tried there, although sometimes it’s  a case of right time, right place. If so, our timing was bad. So, even though outside Motiti was slower, it was still the best bet.

Tarakihi can be frustrating when you’re sitting over them and they are just not biting, but at least they’re not here one day gone the next like snapper can  be.

  • 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
