Fishing Reports

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

Westerly winds were pretty unrelenting all week

A quiet week for us, and everyone else except harbour fishers, as the Westerly winds were pretty unrelenting all week, meaning all trips postponed until it eases a bit.

The El Nino effect generally means nice weather but lots of sea breezes,  we’ve seen more rain than blue skies, so hopefully we’ll get them along with less wind.

The Met service and NIWAs predictions about coming weather patterns aren’t always that spot on, so it’ll be interesting to see what does eventuate in the next few weeks.

As an optimist, I’m hoping for a late, but long settled summer, plenty of fish, and the Astrolabe exclusion zone to be reduced or removed.

That would be nice.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
