Fishing Reports

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

We covered a few different spots last week!

Good weather and fluctuating fishing meant we covered a few different spots last week. We tried the Pinns on Wednesday and did well on the tarakihi until midday, then it just stopped.

Tried  for over an hour before heading shallower and lucking onto some good snapper to finish the day.

A short Friday kept us closer to home , but we found good snapper outside the Okaparus.

Saturday, a late cancellation meant no fishing, no refund there,  a  perfect day too. Sunday made up for it  though, good fishing and good crew, with a good selection of fish caught.

Monday looked like being more of the same , but 30+knots of Southerly, which hadn’t been forecast, forced us behind Motiti, where we lucked onto some good snapper, so a good end to what looked pretty dubious at the beginning of the trip.

  • 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
