Fishing Reports

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

Warm water, skippies, kingies, marlin and autumn

Well. one thing the storm of the century did , the one the  weekend before last when it blew and rained some, [almost unheard of in NZ] was slow the fishing down a bit.

Well, I think it did, we had a few quieter days where the tarakihi eased up, but possibly coincidence, as conditions have continued to be very pleasant, with little wind and current, and they did pick up later in the week.

Water temperature is still around 20.5* and we’re still picking up skippies and seeing the odd marlin out towards Mayor, so autumn is continuing the trend of later summers that we’ve seen over the  last few years.

There’s been an increase in the number of kingfish being caught, lots of rats, right down to 20cm, as well as a few legal ones, not that usual when bottom fishing, but a welcome sight for the lucky anglers.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
