Went for a twilight fish last night at the port. Bite time was about 7.45. Anchored up at 7.00, It was raining but the sea was flat. Fish started biting about 7.30 and stopped about 9.15. Kept 2 snapps, with the biggest being 6lb and 5 gurnard. Released about 6 pannies around the 300mm mark and had a nice paddle back in the dark.
 
The solution to any problem - work, money, love, whatever - is to go fishing - the worse the problem the longer the fishing trip should be.

Deanoo, try Ohawe Beach. I've fished there a few times and it can be a very productive area at certain times of the year. Quite often you only have to go out a couple of hundred metres to get onto the big boys.

Theres been some big snapps caught in 3mtrs at Ohawe and they get good cod as well. Very shallow for miles out, good launching spot. I haven't had much luck there myself, however it's always been ****ty and windy when I've fished there. Not worth going if it's been raining as it dirtys up real quick.

Been to WC today.   Big dumping shore break near HT quite scary but we got out.    Caught  about 15 pannie snaps, 7 gurnard, 2KY and 2 big grey sharks.    Westerly got up over 15knots and made home paddle very slow with some rollers coming at us 300-400m out nearly all the way from the waterfall to the ramp.   No bities seen.

Decided to give White Cliffs a go on Sunday as the moon faze was good. Text Wondaboy to see if he was keen, however the reply was that he thought it might chop up as it was forecast for a strong westerly.
As I was on my own I decided to make it an early one and arose sleepy eyed at 4am to the sounds of gusty wind and proceeded to get ready. I had planned to be fishing by 6am however I soon realised that a surf launch in the dark might be a bit ambitious. I arrived at WC at 5.30, just as daylight was peeping through, to a flat sea with a foot high wave and very little wind. A mental note was made as the sand had shifted dramatically leaving a 2.5mtr to 3mtr drop to the low tide and that the surf could prove a bit dumpy at high tide. I paddled around for a while checking out spots and finally anchored at about 7am. within 10min the bites started and soon a wee snap was released. I then proceeded to catch snap after snap after snap, keeping the odd one as they were all over 300mm. then the ledger nodded, this felt like a better fish and soon a nice 7.5lb was in the bin. The stray line screamed, then rested. I waited a few seconds then set the hook. Yes, Bu**er too keen. Re-baited the stray line with 1/4 of a kahawai and flicked it 30mtrs into the burly trail. I was hooked up on the ledger and was reeling in when the stray line sang again. I popped the ledger in the holder still bouncing and set the stray line. After 6 or 7 minutes  a nice snap around 16lb arrived at the side of the yak. As he was coming in I could see he was only just hooked and I new that I would have to gaff him to get him in the yak. As I was mainly looking for table fish I gabbed the trace, gave it a couple of quick tugs and off he swam. I finished the day catching about 50 snapps, keeping 10 for the bin and a little trev as well.

If you come down, let us know.
Don't worry too much about the surf as there is normally a hidden bay with easy access no matter what the wind and the Naki boys don't mind showing you the spots.
 
We've got a comp coming up in April - we're just sorting out a few final details and it should be a great weekend. The big thumpers will be around then so there should be some good action

Lots of fish off the port at the moment.    Went out on a falling tide in the middle of today to get a bit of fishing in before the weather craps out tomorrow.    Still 3m swell but little wind.   Water quite dirty from the dredge or swell but the fish were there.    In 3 hours I hooked some 25 gurnard and about 15 pannie snaps.    Took home limit of each.
 
Make the most of this glut guys as such handy fishing wont last.

Oh yes, I nearly forgot.    Busted the rod when two snapper hit the baits simultaneously.
