Hi all,as forecast swell map was right on the money sunday!
Got to Manu bay ramp at 6.45 sunday , no boats there we were 1st in the water!
Tide was nearly full and was a easy launch for my Ramco.My mate Rob and I decided to head out around towards ruapuke to do some straylining in close. On the way around spotted a small piece of foul on the sounder a quick stop resulted in a good Kahawai and a couple reef fish so out to 35ms same spot  last time we got onto the snaps and again he pulled the goods!Kept 10 snapper to 3kg,had to sort through heaps of spiny dogs a coup baras and 10 kahawai.having heaps for a feed we headed out to Gannet for a troll and a jig for kingis.Rapalas never got hit and all our jigging produced was a big blue maomao foul hookedLOLjig was longer than it too!
having failed but had a good look around Gannet we headed back into a glassy sea to Manu bay where the retrieve was perfect,no swell or wind.mint.
Only a dozen or so boats at ramp carpark,thout there would of been heaps more having perfect conditions?maybe to cold for some!Big smile
WEST IS BEST!

Well it was an early start but we made the effort and got to the ramp at sunrise.
One other vehicle there which was surprising as the sea was glassy and flat.
Out to a not so secret spot and straight into the snapper. Nothing large but all pan size jobs.
Tried several spots and ended up with a load of good snapper, a few Tarakihi and some very good gurnards before the sharks and barras located us .
Quick trip back to the ramp again very calm conditions and only a few other boats spotted out.

Spent the afternoon in and around Jackson's hiding from the rising easterly firstly in about 30m off the back of the reef where nothing was happening. Moved onto sand inside Jackson's and managed 4 35+cm gurnard and a few skinny ky. Pulse of swell made for interesting return to Manu bay where half the crew ditched the cleanup for a surf. Good to be on the water!

Caught a nice weather window this afternoon. Went out to 30m off Carter's and had a sporadic bite onthe drift. Snapper to 45cm small gurnard.Moved over to Jackson's and a worked a couple of boilups into dusk for some nice ky on plastics.

Another all action high tide surge getting out of Manu bay. Thanks tothe team work of the crew we managed only a couple of scratches!
