Yes I can see with my own eyes  and experience from many previous years in same area, look for the signs, feel the ocean, birds have way better vision than my old eyes, smell the Marlin, all lead to same result. Too many retards don't know how to read the signs, rely on Facebook or messenger or keyboard warriors  which is way off track, ask any of my clients & friends what is going on by fisherman who actually catch fish, not just write about it.
Rant over, good luck to all, cheers swordfishsteveSmile

Hodder,

I have no real time experience and as Steve points out being there is more info.

But as you asked.
I will have a look.
But my opinion or view on what I see maybe as valuable as thin air.

So where is cone rock.....

I don't know either but Cone Island is Northern end of Stevies so assume that is also called cone rock by the locals.

Thanks Krow,
Also cone rocks off whangaruru if memory serves me.

However As Steve likes to hunt that northern area ill look at that zone.

More than likely though there was a party held by the locals and open to all visitors.

Did a day live baiting the other day. Loads of boats and quite sloppy. While some launches did well all we.managed was a mako.

Congrats. Were you on lures? We did a couple of days now for no bites just seeing others. How deep were your bites

Based on what we saw the past few days I would stay in the 90m - 130m depths from Stevies through to Karikari as a starting point. Seem to be plenty of skippies around once you find the right depths. Not a lot of bait around though so if you find good bait it is worth working around it for a while.apparently there were marlin rounding up bait in 90m on the North Ground yesterday morning.
