Fishing Reports

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

Weather's warmer and the days longer, fish still in deeper water

Still a bit quiet on the bookings, but the weather’s warmer and the days longer, so we should be getting  more calls soon.

We went out on Sunday, stopped inside the Okaparus and got some nice snapper and a few good sized tarakihi. Enough that I thought it might be worth checking out a couple of spots in the shallower water to see if they have started to move in.

No luck however, so we carried on outside Motiti. It’s always a balancing act between where they were and where they’re likely to be heading. Which should be in, but not yet this year it seems.

Tried a few more spots, but still not much until we got into the deeper water, which is still the snapper and tarakihi preference at present.

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 Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you
