Finally, it’s on! Dolphins, gannets, terns, seals, and even a whale… simply chaos last Tuesday out in the middle of the Bay near the 50m mark. Pete and I were lucky enough to find this insane workup and everything we tried produced good pan-sized fish. A softbait produced the biggest fish of the day but the slowjigs accounted for the most. We had our limit in under two hours and went home to share the bounty with friends and neighbours.
The same day young Mitch (aka Uncle) was fishing with Mick Jepson around Cape Brett and they also had a cracker day with some XOS fish being landed.
Ginge has been out wide undertaking some deep drops and he says he caught the biggest tarakihi he has ever seen. I see on social media that some charter operators have also been catching some good h?puku out deep.
The weather forecast for Saturday looks a bit too windy, but Sunday morning should be a goer. My suggestion is to head out to around 40m and see if you can find the action.
Come into the shop to check out the latest in gear, get your bait, ice and berley, and most importantly, some genuine intel! We are currently operating on our winter days – closed Monday, Tuesday and Thursday but we are always available after hours to run down to the shop and supply bait or gear. Just give me a call!
