Fishing Reports

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

The wind picked up as predicted

Well, after 3 weeks of inaction we finally got a day[Sunday] in. Initially an overnighter, but the 35/40 knots Saturday discouraged that, so we got away early Sunday.

Quite reasonable conditions too. We stopped at the Pinns, where there was a strong  SW current running.

Initially we got a good mix of fish, including an 85/90cm kingfish, but things slowed to a stop as it steadily picked up through the morning. Mayor seemed a reasonable alternative, and there was nowhere near the current. Fishing was steady, but predominately pink mao mao  and red snapper, conditions unsettled enough to put the rest off.

The wind picked up as predicted, more 30+kn  NW, but comfortable enough when it’s a following sea. So, overall, not bad.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    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
