Raglan Fishing Report - April 21st, 2021

21 April 2021

The Autumn snapper are here with fish being caught in depths from 35 meters to 60 meters north and west of the bar, with the better snapper being 50 meters and out. There are a few respectable gurnards to be had out in the deeper depths of 50 to 60 meters as a bycatch too. Good kahawai are still there along with the odd trevally each trip.

For the most part the fish are hitting squid first and other baits second. If you find a path of hungry ones then they will hit almost anything.

There’s still the odd kingfish around on the structures, but you have to work for them and once hooked it’s a race to get them landed before the bronze taxman takes a cut.

The skipjack tuna are here finally with good numbers seen this week north of the bar in the 50 to 60 meter range. With the surface water temperature still holding at 19 degrees get out there soon for your spring bait supply.
