Fishing Reports

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

Very good around the Astrolabe

We tried a few different spots this week. More Westerly forecasts meant heading towards Mayor was going to be too beam on, so  a more comfortable trip was had by heading more East.

Friday was beautiful, and the fishing also very good around the Astrolabe, so even home a bit early.

Saturday’s forecast was similar to Friday’s, but ended up  with more S.W. and  a lumpier sea than expected. Friday’s spots were less productive, so  we tried a few different ones, eventually finding good quantities of tarakihi, along with snapper, some trevally and a couple of legal kingies, one of which bounced back over the side after being taken out of the net. Sorry bout that!

Still, a good couple of days.  

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
