Anyone care to share some advice on where to go to target snapper. The mates sounder is broken ATM so we will be doing a bit of blind fishing, but anything to get out there as its been a while!

Have heard lots of people say just go out deep to 60m at this time of the year straight out from Manu or a little bit north. Have also heard from people say drive out from Manu out towards Pauanui Point (Ruapuke) and head straight out off that point to what depth the snapper are. Can anyone verify this?

Have had some experience at Jackson's but unsure about this time of the year.

Launch, go for twenty minutes wait. You will get a feed. 40 mtrs + at the moment I've been told.

Spent saturday and sunday on the water. Both mint days. Chased a lot of patchy work ups in 50-60m for snapper to 45cm and some fat ky and a 20kg tope.Word at the ramp was try a bit closer but my spots at 30 -40m didn't produce. Sunday was particlarly hard. Arrived back at manu bay at full tide sunday, turned around and fished for two more hours as there is only so much salt the old falcon can take and i dont think the 16 footer will quite fit in the boote.

how many Snapper did you pick up mash? Maybe we dont know the right spots to go to. I spent saturday out there, well half a saturday until the mate got sick and wanted to come in. We only picked up one snapper at 35m, we tried a variety of different spots from 35-45m after that and didnt even get a bite. there were a few boats in close at Jacksons when we first went out but they wernt there by the afternoon, so it was probably a hard day for them as well.

four snapper. Tried ledgers, soft baits, various bottom luers etc. Chased the kahawai schools and fished around and under them. Had plenty of fun trying to work it out, a sounder may help, but managed a good feed. Hapy to eat KY. There were plenty of boats out but everyone was moving so maybe hard for everyone . Had a couple of kids with me who got sick but they were well prepped on sucking it up unless it's life threatening!

I use mussell for bait and that doesn't attract the sharks so much. They do love pillies though!
