Out from the GCG ramp at 09:15 back at 12:15.
Not as much sign around compared to last week.
Inchiku and SPs,
Fished from 12-20 meter depths.
8 X nice KY
2 X barely legal snapper.
No sign of those 20Knot winds when we where out there,so timed it well.
Few big logs along the current lines.
Pilles and anchovies in KY bellies as well.
Try again next week.
Peace.Via superior firepower..

After a great venture up North (fishing was ok - few kings, plenty snapper, trevs, etc) last weekend I was back to the Firth.
Left GCG at approx. 6am - noticed mussel barge was out so up to the farm.
Pulled up to find them not harvesting. Bugger.
So moved and started in shallows - approx. 5-7m and proceeded to enjoy a couple of hours on sofies (Lime tiger lizards doing the business). Almost every cast resulting in a fish.
This slowed as sun came over the hills and headed out to find the birds in deeper water.
Still lots of kahawai and snaps below.
Water temp at 11.4.
Great morning out.
Back at ramp at 11 with 3 snapper kept. 40-45cm. Could have had my limit after 1st hour.

Shot out late this afternoon to Kaiaua mussel farm and burleyed up big time.......landed some nice fish with the outgoing tide ........then a redish tinged tide flooded the entire area ......fish disappeared !

Anyone have an idea as to what this was ..........

Skunk,
Great to see you guys had a successful mission. Don't show everyone my spot.
It would appear that thing are getting quieter out deeper as I see the longliners have been working these areas for the last few weeks.
I only kept two fish - one at 42 and 52cm. Plenty to be had from 30-40cm, however I tend to let these go.
Stunning day out there - water temp at 13.4.
Hope to catch up with ya again on the water.
I didn't see any of this reddish tinge you are talking about sinful as I was back at the ramp at 11am. Could be krill or algae?

Yes Sinful, we did notice a red tinge to the water on our way back to the ramp, could have been krill as a lot of bait and birds in the area..some of our snaps spewed up krill kinda stuff like mini shrimps aye.
 
Yeah Drakar those 40cm+ ones are ideal alright.. and I don't know what spot you are talking aboutWink ..you made us wear blindfolds remember!... have done good a tad further north of there also.
It does seem quieter out deeper now, I agree.Will keep in touch next time were out.

Awesome weather sunday , shot up to Te Kouma had a hard day with only 7 + 1 carrot.2 Boats i know of went to waikawau and did very well including one 20lber while fishing near a working mussel barge.

Sounds like they still in the shallows , so no need to travel far at the moment.

Hey Kaveman -I see Shauny landed himself a 17pounder snap out of whanga. Great effort!
