I had a boomer day on Tarawera two weeks ago Stefan.
We managed to find them stacked up & had a ball, multiple doubles & busted off "nearly's", lol.
They were taking most anything offered but overall, the green bodied Ginger Mick in size # 6 probably scored most.

Had a great little session on Tarawera this evening.

First time I've ever been on the lake in a boat but Humphries Bay looked a likely spot.

Found a bunch of fish in 22m and landed 7 in just over an hour then had to head for home.

Grey Ghost caught the most, Slimey Ghost and Olive Rabbit caught 1 each.

We were at Tarawera Labour Weekend and found most of the fish were in very poor condition. Fishing not bad a.m. and p.m. best of course.

Anyone know why they're in poor condition? Some say not enough taken due to Covid and not enough tucker but??
