Had a son surfing who called the trip in. water was quite unsettled after Saturday but progressively got better as the afternoon wore on. The crew were pretty tired by the end fishing in the slop. Having crew in rags all the time makes calling the trip easier with the forecast from last Wednesday on looking pretty crap.

Had aanother arvo fish out from Manu, in between the NE and SW change. Looked pretty stormy to the north with a shifty NW swell coming through. Went round the corner inside Jackson's in about 15m of water. Fished through the shark infestation and our persistence paid off with half a dozen gurnard too 40cm and a heap of ky. The ky are pretty skinny still
Looking north, didn't get wet!

Did well to get out mashinator. I looked and thought yeah nah. Glad you got a result to boot.

I was going to try the 30m mark off Carters but sounds like the sharks are still thick

Good to see another raglan report!

We were in the harbour sat, trying out the new Furuno gp1870.we installed it earlier sat morn.
Trolled Rapalas around the harbour for a hour then sat off the pines for next hour only tiny snaps and a trev.
there were  a few coming back over the bar when we hit the ramp.
Furuno was awesome!Next time itl be out deep of Manu!
limit your catch not catch your limit!

magic day on the water yesterday. Shot out to about 65m and fished in to Jackson's with four 40cm snapper and a gurnard for 80km on the water. Plus heaps of sharks at every depth. Had a light easterly and outgoing for the trip out with a sw push home on the incoming. Made all those scrappy days well worth it.

That's some traveling but what a day to do it. Nice. So not much difference from 65m to jack sons then species wise? Sharks are bloody good eating so if they are still thick in a months time when I fly back ill surely be loading up! Awesome

Most sharks were 1-2 foot with one decent tope of 8kg. A few small work ups which didn't amount too much, but no kahawai this trip, they're probably heading in close for the whitebait and juvenile feed. There were a few boats heading out to 50 from kawhia and raglan. I was thinking the warm winter might bring the fish in a bit. Didn't see any kingy action and put a jack out under a balloon on Jackson's but never gave it much time. Heard some talk that fish were holding up in 20 to 30m but couldn't verify it.
looking south towards taranaki.

Heard some boys got their limit off the manukau on tues in a few hours. In 57m and fish were up to 7kg but for every snap there was a couta or shark.

We had one of our best ever days about 20th Sept a few years back. Out 60 m off 21, found a big work up and had bag 45 for 3 anglers in under 1 1/2 hours- You could catch them on jigs softies or bait...

strong onshore winds with short windows to fish if you're not working. Been some nice days amongst the storms.

October outlook from metservice is predominant strong westerlies from the north, south and everywhere in between. Might turn into a long spring with a few windows if you're not working! Might have to plan a few east coast trips .
