We went for a 4 hour fish on Saturday between the Purakau green buoy and the Tripod.
Glassy conditions and plenty of  boats out. No Gurnard for us but plenty of Kahawai.

So you drew a blank as well on the gurnard front. Maybe you were among the boats coming into french bay late afternoon. Seems like very hard fishing in that area yesterday. Seemed to be a lot of sediment-mud  in the water in parts yesterday. Maybe that played a part
That Green tripod. Have seen it not too far away when fishing the purukau. Is that on the Papakura Channel

Caught around 7 gurnard and another 20+ kahawai today this time in the shallows between the Waiuku channel and the Ropers channel? (I think it's called that). This time the kahawai were alot smaller than on saturday.

Smudge - No barracouta came aboard today, and it's been the girls who've caught the last 5 of them haha, i'm hoping they stay away from my bait too. Heres a pic of the smaller one from saturday, shows how good the weather was too!

Launched Cornwallis on late Saturday afternoon and took advantage of the ideal conditions.

Fished the top of outgoing tide on the edge of the Karore bank and Papakura channel with a mate, harbor was a MILLPOND!

Fishing was slow to start with but as the current got flowing I began to feel the familiar tickle of Gurnard playing with our baits.
Being a newbie to the art of hooking Gurnard my mate quickly had some catching up to do!
Ended up keeping 8 in the bin up to approx 1.2Kg, mainly smaller males. Not too bad for a couple of hours fishing on the muddy Manukau.

Heaps of phosphorescence in the water on the way back to Cornwallis as it got darker

I had a small burley down a meter or so above the bottom. I personally find this helps to bring and hold the Gurnard closer to the boat and If you chose your spot right you shouldn't get too much shark hassles.
