Fishing Reports

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

Very nice to see settled weather over Easter

Very nice to see settled weather over Easter. Still a good mix of fish being caught in the 30/40m areas around Motiti, with snapper, kingfish, often just undersize, and kahawai more prevalent inside the island, and some good catches of golden snapper and tarakihi in the deeper water outside and around the Okaparus.

Some good  schools of kahawai around Astrolabe, but the bottom fishing’s been  quite slow.

We’re still getting some skippies on the lures, quite close in too, so it’s worth getting them in the water early on.

Mayor’s still fishing quite well with good snapper and tarakihi, although the drift fishing’s been slow. It’s always more at the whim of the wind and currents though, so nothing new.

 

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

    Regards

  • 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

    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
