Watch the video ((15) How to fish INCHIKU jigs. - YouTube) with this report and see for yourself if you are getting ready to head out.

There is a lot of excitement, near and far; even the inner gulf’s 10-15m depths are producing great action in the evenings this week. A few days of recce by various combatants like smaller pods of dolphins cruising through one day, some terns, then a few days later everyone got the email, it’s on!

A gannet vortex of dive bombing, birds rising back up, and diving again. Underneath is baitfish bedlam. And where was this, out past Great Barrier? No. Little Barrier/Anchorite? No. The middle ground? No. It was all within good eyesight/easy bino range of people nestling down and preparing dinner for the evening along Auckland’s northern shores and the southern Hibiscus Coast.

Enjoy your fishing,
