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.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
