Pulled the pin to mattoo I’m thinking the same as you.

Early start and diverting to kaiwaka bay for a snapper fish and livebaiting session if we can fill the tank.

I'd like to be wrong as we cancelled our trip.

But it maybe a short uncomfortable bar crossing window and a short sea state.

Fishable but uncomfortable.

Hope I'm wrong and you guys may prove great results.

If your out..

Go cable zone or the north eddies.

Wide to 700m shows current influence .

Or if your smart, you'd of bought into Paul's info.

Just saying.

wide looks good too, there are a couple of wide marks, 900m to 1200m off port waikato. Not saying that shallow is best, but there is bait in shallow as allways, temp and colour are also good. currents ideal. less gas

What a result.
Is that a forum member.
Will we get a blow by blow account.

Good food there.

Nice to know the depth caught.

There are stacks of pelagics out west and east.
Epic season will ensue.

Went for a look yesterday off the manukau but pretty quiet overall.

Water pretty cold best temp was 19.5m, very little bait around not a lot on the sounder but managed a few albies in close at 70m Mark.

Another boat as far as 500m didn’t

Are you surprised or dissapointed.

Overall the West is not ready yet.

Look at the charts, unless your extremely lucky the west is limited for pelagics.

Albies yes, temps suggest so.

But otherwise your burning gas for nothing.

Be smart go east.

A marlin was sighted off our 40km spot today. That is waaaay south for this time of yr. 40-50km sth of Napier. 18 deg. I was planning to go today and pulled the pin at 5am - wind and variable forecasts. But to see a marlin down here at this time of yr is rare.

Trip Report! (do people still do these? everyone seems to just talk **** on FB)

Went out from the Manukau yesterday, slightly north of the bar. Green water all the way out to 65-70m, found a good patch of albies in the 80-100m range and put a few in the bin, 19.5C. Went out to the 400m and best temp was 20.6 although very quiet. VHF was pretty quiet too all day.

glassy conditions all day Thumbs Up

Brilliant man.
You must be stoked.

And a big thumbs up for those who pitched in.

You'll be buzzing with that result.
