Fishing Reports

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

Very strong currents from the East
10 January 2018
0 0

The big tides are still having an effect on the fishing, with very strong currents from the East  continuing. A bit frustrating as the fish are here, but bite times a short and sweet.

We  took a group of regulars out for a kingfish/Hapuku trip and got a couple of nice kingies and a mixture of gemfish and a Hapuku, losing  a good few due to the inconsistent drifts, with wind and swell against the current yet again.

We’ve started picking  up skippies though, so the game fishing is getting closer with the weekend’s wild weather from the NE likely continuing the improvement.

It certainly stirred up the harbour, with a starboard beacon and a port buoy at the entrance both badly damaged by the storm.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    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 my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • 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

    Tanya
