Although I've been in Wellington for over 30 years I'm still a card-carrying, one-eyed Cantabrian (can't help it- grew up right next to Lancaster Park and was watching Canterbury defend the shield since I was about 5, worked in the scoreboard etc).  Still have family down there - thankfully all OK and only relatively minor damage.  Count me in - if my new boat hasn't arrived happy to help out with weigh-in or whatever.  PM me to discuss

good to see boating thing for wellington,went out harbour today ,beautifull conditions but fish pretty slow.
few ky ,then barrucuta,few good size terras ,couple of blue cod .nothing that great to mention .
we have caught a few good size elephant fish ,terras ,blue cod and a 6.5lb snapper ,in harbour over the last few weeks ,but i must say the snapper seem to be hard to come  by in harbour,
anyone no of any good spots there?or is it all up to fluke in harbour ,best we head back over to mana ways had far better luck over there ,good luck guy and cals lets get sum big buggers .

hey Torcea, the weather is looking good for this weekend and usually i'm out the south coast when i can but it looks like a good weekend to be out west. I'm really keen to catch my first kingy, I no fishermen don't really like to share their spots but have you got any tips or places for a virgin kingy fisherman.

How'd everyone do today?

We decided to go out this morning (after clearing it with civil defense) and launched from plimmerton bridge. It was our first attempt on the west coast and until about 3pm it was going to be my last as we had caught sweet FA!
 
Anyway got a couple drifts going from mana bridge and managed to coax a few carrots onto our hooks. Feelling a little better about the day we repeated the drift and this time landed 2 nice pannie snaps. Each going around 40cm or so...
 
This is the first time we had caught snapper in wellington so we were pretty stoked to say the least. So in the end a good day but seemed very hit and miss and i'd say our 'success' was more luck than judgement!
 
There were a few boats out - did anyone else do alright? Anyone got tips for the area...

had the same hit and miss out the west coast yesterday only managed scarpie and a couple terras. the fishing doesn't seem to be the same as the south coast unless its because i'm doing something wrong, instant bites out the south but out west not as good.

Went out kapiti yesterday afternoon first time trying to get an albie. Was no birds or anything around, i ended up getting 1 at 6kgs and my mate dropped one right at the boat which was abit bigger.  Still stoked as it was my first albie.  Had a jig but didnt get any kings just anoying barracouta's.
