Fishing Reports

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

We gave the Pinnacles a look, the first in some time

After a couple of slower days around the Motiti area, we gave the Pinnacles a look, the first in some time.

There was some current running, not a good sign, and the fishing reflected it. We did catch fish, mainly tarakihi and some small snapper, but eventually gave it away and moved in a bit closer and had a  short hit of tarakihi which topped  up the tallies.

Not enough to repeat though. So back to Motiti on Saturday. Tried a few marks inside the island for nothing much, but outside was a lot better, so in conjunction with having a pod  of dolphins escort us out and nice settled weather, a good trip.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
