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

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.

    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,
