What a last couple of weeks here in Raglan. The Marlin fishing has been off the charts with some boats tagging three or more fish a day and many more weighed by Raglan Sport Fishing Club. The albacore tuna are out there too but are yet to move in closer. Skippies are yet to materialise it seems.
The snapper fishing in close over the last week has been exceptional with almost half the catch looking like a spring time size. 20m to 35m either north up the coast or around the back of the mountain have been producing the goods. Squid is getting it done with fresh skin off kahawai not far behind in the bait stakes.
The kingfish are there on the structure in good numbers still too as one would expect, but so are the Bronze Taxmen.
