Fishing Reports

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

There's plenty of fish around, it just comes down to conditions

The last couple of weeks certainly saw a wide range of fishing and weather conditions. From excellent to extremely hard, windy to flat calm. Quite often within a day or  two of each other.

We’ve  been doing well  in the deeper water on tarakihi, with the odd snapper and trevally as well,  mainly due to the offshore winds keeping the warmer currents out further. Consequently the snapper  haven’t shown up in close in any quantity yet.

Town Pt, Karewa and the middle ground have all had their moments but been more inconsistent due to some strong currents than the 50m plus areas.

We got one Hapuku trip in, which started well, with mainly gemfish on the first drifts then increasing current slowed things down again

Still, overall, pretty good. There’s plenty of fish around, it just comes down to conditions on the day and at present they’re very volatile.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • 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
