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

  • 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
    Aaron
