Fishing Reports

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

The wet weather meant not much fishing but certainly got the lawns growing, a lose lose situation from my point of view. Still it was ok for the Paeroa  Motorbike races, a bonus.

We did get the Wednesday in, which was a nice sunny , settled  day. The fishing  started well and was good until about lunchtime when they  just stopped.

No obvious reason, conditions were still excellent, good sign,  just totally off the bite. A friend fishing  about 12miles away had exactly the same thing, which isn’t uncommon. The fishy collective unconscious perhaps.

We tried a few other spots in closer, but no more luck there either, so home we went

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
