Raglan Fishing Report - December 9th, 2020

09 December 2020

With the onslaught of unsettled weather recently, it’s been hard to get out to the fish. When we have got out there, the epic spring snapper fishing has continued. The fishing in 50m to 60m depths both west and north has been great. When you get on to the snapper, the other species have trouble getting a look in. At times, the snapper have been so hungry that they are swallowing 7/0 hooks regularly. The gurnard are still out there but perhaps in better numbers to the south-west. Big barracouta and the odd mako and blue shark have been taxing the gear and fish lately too – nothing unusual about that. There’s also been some good bycatch of baitfish that, when sliced up in strips, have been getting hammered by the snapper and gurnard.

The reefs are producing kingfish, kahawai and the odd trevally and Spanish mackerel, so good fun to be had there.

No reports of gamefish yet but it’s only a matter of time until they get here.
