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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
