Met Bush at Taylor Reserve shortly after dawn and we hit the water soon after. After making it throught the Papamoa full tide heavy wash cycle without mishap we headed out to the 10 metre mark where there was plenty of fish sign and both hooked up on decent pannies on our first cast. From then on it was consistant fishing. We released several legal pannies each keeping fish over 35cm. Bush broke his kayak sp snapper duck in style keeping 7 good fish.
 
Pretty good going for someone on there second yak fishing mission.
I kept a limit including a 65cm 11lber, I'm stoked!
 
Gulp chatreuse 4" jerk baits and 5" Exude butter chickens on 1/2 oz jig heads did the damage. All fish caught on the drift between Taylor Reserve and the Papmoa Surf Club in 8 - 11 metres.
 
Thanks to you Bay guys for putting me on to this spot.
 
Cheers
Charlie.

Bloody good effort. I was ripped off I knew it my 67cm only 9.5 LBs must have been on Jenny Craig.
I'm still goiing out tomorrow morning 7am off Harrisons cut with me, myself and I. Will be heading out to secret reef only found by lining up secret landmarks or paddling into the middle of all the boats sitting on it. Is everybody working ?

nice fish arrangement charlie.... well done on the 11 pounder.  my 53cm only came in at 5.5. great morning out there, fish everywhere.  both pulling in keepers on first cast was a good sign.  didnt have a spot x - just went to 10m and saw fish on ff and into it. got your ff going yet charlie... caught all my fish close around yak so may not have been getting to bottom on the cast properly.  trid a big boy 9 inch grub tail thing from foodsouce out - was sure it would catch a big-un bud got didly - next time maybe. weekend if weather good - i need to practice those beach landings!

New kayak fisher...until now had only played around the harbour but was encouraged by phishpula and piwi's reports of Papamoa snapper so....ventured out yesterday afternoon from Taylors reserve also. Surprisingly easy conditions to get out through yesterday, then first cast in 6m got a long fat kawahai that went back after a good fight! further out and fish everywhere on the sounder.. Three nice snapper 40-45cm and 3 smaller ones thrown back all on nuclear chicken 5inch (Apparently it's not the length that's important, it's the movement) Headed in with the surf picking up...waiting to bail out or turn turtle but somehow (luck!!) caught a wave, dug the paddle in and surfed all the way to the beach!
It's great when a plan comes together successfully on the first try!
Thanks for all of your "reports" of this great fishing area....same again this afternoon with a bit of luck!

Good work Potus, Fish everywhere at the moment so a good time to venture out. Hopefully you can get out with some others on here sometime.
Will be interesting to see whos still fishing hardout in the middle of winter. That'll sort out the men from the boys.
My expedition this morning not so good. Was onshorish conditions and the guy who came with me didnt have an anchor so we didnt bother going to the reef and just drift softbaited finding fish only at about 15m. I ended up with 5 snapper 30-48cm and the other guy with 2 x snapp around 50 cm and gurnard. I went thru 5 gulps DAMN HATE THAT.

Well done on hte fishing Charlie - nice haul

Welcome to the forum Potus

The solution to any problem - work, money, love, whatever - is to go fishing - the worse the problem the longer the fishing trip should be.
