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

The Super, Wolf and Blue moons
4 January 2018
0 0

Another variable week as far as the fishing goes. We’ve had some good days and some hard ones, mainly due to the wildly varying sea conditions.

The Super, Wolf and Blue moons,  [so much more impressive sounding than closer than usual] create bigger tides and consequently bigger tidal currents, meaning more turbulence on the bottom and shorter feeding times.

So  we’ve had days where there’s been more fishing than catching, but weather has been settled and most are taking home a reasonable amount.

My preference is still the deeper water, 40m+ is more consistent, with a bit more snapper showing up in the last week or so.

We’ve also started to pick up a few skippies, another good sign for now.

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

    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
