Fishing Reports

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

Things had picked up, especially in the shallower water

After finally getting back into the water, we had high hopes for some good fishing after hearing from several sources that things had picked up, especially in the shallower water.

We’d planned on heading out towards the 10m/Pinns, but there was enough westerly that in close was the better option, and found that while there was a bit of fish[tarakihi] around, they weren’t exactly leaping on board.

We moved from outside Omanu to Papamoa, then through the Middle Ground, out to the Okaparus then west of Motiti. Picked up a few fish at each stop, so reasonable tallies by day’s end.

The conditions were quite variable, wind and current coming from different quarters most times we stopped, so that was likely a large part of the slowish day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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.
