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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
