With a bit of local knowledge and most places in NZ have a bounty of kai moana. We are lucky in deed.

Had some great fishing around the mercs in last few days Fishing been great since start of February. Today was a ripper, started slow and steady but later in the morning picked up. Drifted through a herd of big snapper and got some goodies to 75cm. Let the biggies go and came home with a nice bin of good snapper.
Was using the 7" Zmans today and they seemed to be working a lot better than anything smaller.
Great time of the year up here.......think I might go out tomorrow as well.

quick mish Sun morn produced a good feed. Softbaits picking up snapper & JD. Cod favouring the Kabura.  High tide, with a full moon looking on from the west......not what I'd normally fish during.....I wrapped it up before bite time and headed home.

another good softbait mish on Sunday with a couple of mates landed 16 snaps in the bin. No photos this time, similar sizes to previous catches. However, of note was the prevalence of squid at several locations. I landed 1 which got hooked on a softbait, but my softbait was clearly being hit by them a lot thru-out the day. 
Going to get some squid jigs and give it a crack, see if I can't get some decent No's
