Fishing Reports

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

We got  a few days in last week, with varying degrees of success, mainly due to bigger currents than we’ve seen for a while.

Monday was good, fishing inside and outside Brewis and the Lab, where we tried again Tuesday, but things were a bit  slower with the current running hard and not much sign.

Friday had a lot of Westerly wind, so we worked our way to Papamoa and Town Pt for mainly steady fishing, with  a mixture of snapper and tarakihi, and had a good bite later in the day to top things off. Saturday was similar with good conditions and a happy crew.

There is a bit more happening in the shallower water, although the combination of strong W and SW winds and the very big tides courtesy of the supermoon all have their effect on the situation.

    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

  • 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
