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

  • 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

  • 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
