Raglan Fishing Report - 21/09/23

Great fishing out deeper

Good fishing still prevails in the 70-meter-plus depths due to the sea surface temperature only just starting to lift. Good 40 to 50-centimetre snapper are the norm out deeper with the oily and fresh bait definitely being preferred.

The main catch out deeper is snapper with the odd tarakihi and good gurnard to boot, but minimal to no kahawai. There are a few toothy vermin out deep too.  

So far, the spawning spring snapper have not turned up, however the fishing is picking up in the 55-metre depths up in the northwest. Closer in around the coast good fish are still being caught using the bait and berley technique producing the bigger snapper, nice gurnard and smaller kahawai in the 10 metre or less depths close to the coast. Hopefully, by the next report we will have the first spring snapper to report.
