Took the daughter and a friend out to Karapiro for a quick fish on the boat to get outside on a nice day.
Now that the water has cooled down to about 14 degrees the weed is starting to retreat and the fish are a bit easier to get to, although they are still holding deep during the middle of the day.

Had a hit from something big but it managed to shake the hook out, then 10 minutes further upstream took this 5.5lb brown in about 15m using a savage 3D softbait on the downrigger. Was a decent scrap on a light rod and line with some big runs before we managed to boat it.

Smiles say it all.......

Nice one

Pretty underrated fishery in my opinion
Behind every good fisherman is a lonely woman
