Raglan Fishing Report - May 19th, 2021

19 May 2021

The westerlies are starting to show up with increasing frequency, so getting out to those hungry autumn snapper has been the biggest hurdle.

When conditions are right there’s been some good snapper out in the 50 to 65 meter range both west and north, with oversized pannies also in excellent condition making up the rest of quota’s. There’s also been some nice gurnard  at the depths in the bycatch, along with a trev or two for the raw fish lovers.

Right in close both north and south have seen the trophy-size snapper caught, if you need one of those. The 25 to 35 meter areas are also holding good pannies, but the gurnard are a bit smaller/too small, just move around until you hit the hungry ones.

The fish are still taking squid for bait but are starting to favour the bonito as sea temperatures cool.

Tight lines,
