Had the pleasure of those dickheads too back by Bayswater. Had planned to go further afield but didn’t like the wind this morning so just went where we knew would be sheltered and full of fish. Not wrong either with 15 nice snapper in the bin (between 3 of us) between 7 and 9am. Best fish just over 3kg which put up a good scrap on the light gear in 6m of water. Great fun

Did a late afternoon trip yesterday. Found a place sheltered from the breeze and away from other boats. A place i had often passed but never given it a second thought. Decided  i would give it a go.Sat out there in sparkling sun light,cooling breeze,and fished as the shadows fell. Watched the light and falling shadow play on the brown dry grasses of the hills,turning gold as the breeze made distant tracks across the slopes and down to the sea. 
Surprised to start catching fish. 7 nice snapper in no time.Solitude and fish.
And the trip back into one of the most beautiful sunsets for a long, long time.The whole city and western ranges were bathed in light.
And the odd quartering sea bathed me in a welcome cooling spray Being out there brings a new vigor ,new life ,optimism .
On cleaning the snapper today i noticed something i had not seen before at this time of year.. Most contained small developing roe. Most were male with milt ,one female with roe.
Thought spawning was over. Could finding small roe mean a rare second spawn is on the way.?

Nice work Cirrus, sounds like a very enjoyable afternoon spent out on the water.

I went further north in search of Kingies. Armed with plenty of livebaits of which many soon turned dead with the failure of my tank pump, I pushed on out to my spot.

Greeted by an almost instant hook up and line peeling of the TLD on arrival I thought it was all on!. Next thing... ping! On 60lb in mid water.... Then the damn snapper turned up and began smashing my livies in mid water. This quickly depleted my already dwindling stocks. As I sent my last lively livie down to the depths it suddenly came shooting back to the surface and again my hopes were raised, only to be crushed by the distant flop of monster kahawai trying to make a break for freedom.

Plan B - saw me trying a new technique (for me) of dragging a couple of sliders hard on the sand and I was plesently surprised by both the hookup rate and quality of fish. All fish kept were males and all had developed milt, some even had the red nudge marks. Definitely signs of spawning I think!

Now to get this pump sorted before next trip!

Pity about missing out on the Kingy. But always another day and another time.Sounds like the rest of the fishing went O.K.
Sliders . Are they the  same as Kabura.
Strange about the snapper in roe. Some of mine also had the nudge marks,yet size of roe indicated they had a long way to go before spawn. All bar one of my snaps were male. Now go back to October -November and 9 out of ten were female then. Suddenly its mostly male.

Surprisingly slow for this time of year.  Spent the first hour or so with an orange kabura in the rod holder, and another in the hand, doing the slow retrieve and drop routine.  Got 2 pannies around 38cms, and then a lot around 30 to 33cms, all returned.  A boat close by caught a very nice snapper about 60cms, mucho celebration.  Later tried a third rod with Zman curlytail and Zman prawn, which did quite well either worked or in the rod-holder, but still only small snaps.  Nice feed for our family, so can't complain.
