A slow day fishing today, was greeted by Surfers and some good waves this morning at Manu Bay. Launched the boat and waited for some smaller waves before before making the run out to the 50 meter mark. Sea was better than I thought it would, be with a nice meter plus swell and no wind chop.  Fishing was slow, ended up with 15 snappers and 7 nince Gurnard. Ky were around and the dreaded Coutas we lost quite few traces. They seemed to like my mates shiny sinkers.  The sea was going straight over the top of the wall at Manu bay with a good surge going up the ramp, made it interesting getting the boat back on the trailer.                  
All in all agood day out fish for tea,  and didnt brake anything used 13.5lts petrol for 36.5km.Big smile

Nice Fish !! Christened the new boat at Raglan last Saturday, flat on the bar, out to 35m for a start, mainly small fish and a bit slow. Cruised out to 40 plus m but Juri hooked a huge blue shark on the first drop which decided to circle the boat until the braid broke on the anchor rope. I also hooked one so we decided to shift. The weather was starting to get a bit dodgy so we moved into about 40m between Ruapuke and indicators. Fishing was still slow but Juri got some good sized Gurnard and  an assortment of other species.
Trip back in the chop was non eventful, Surtees 700 GF is a very good boat, smoother than our old 6.1 gamefisher. Hopefully the weather will settle and the fishing improves. Heard some on on the R.T. at 100m had hooked a very large Tuna!

Out yesterday 50m,  Gurnard were coming aboard 3 to 1 for every Snapper.                 Blue Sharks turned up and became a nuisance so we moved out further to 52m.              More Snapper than Gurnard now and 1 Terakihi  sharks found us again so pulled the pin, another good day out west Was surprised to see alot of the Snapper still had roe in them.

Good work, sharks are a bit of a nuisance at the moment, interesting that some of the fish still have roe in them

Quick trip out as it turned out - planned for a snapper sesson. Been told fishing is tough and patchy at best.

2 mates went out same day, one did 30m then 40m for 4 hours for two kawhia. Other took his kid into the harbour and got 4 snapper. Got me thinking.
So I went to 9-11m and got ready for a big wait. As it happened I couldn’t get to the bottom with multiple hook ups. Limited out in just over an hour - insane action. Nothing too big apart from a horse of a Gurnard. Hooked a kawhia for 20 20 cricket sushimi and we were done. Driving back to Hamilton at 9.30am eating my packed lunch and drinking my coffee. Missus thought something had gone wrong when I pulled up in the drive so early haha.

Just one of those days .

Nice Reel DealWink Try a Whole fillet Kahawai two hook Strayline casted way off boat in that depth next time. Big ones are there not as many as they have spawned and most bugger off to where i don't know! I come in that close as well during these hot next few months. Hope to get out  2moro test the theoryLOL Keep it up. Cheers.....

Haha SG like minds. Did the split tuna head 2 hook stray line 1990;styles but ended up with a clean frame on hook when retrieved. Also dropped a primo small kawahi livie down on JD rig with no luck - took me about 6 snapper to finish tieing that rig !! Hot action.

That’s it for me this month boat goes for service at end of month - freezer loaded with snapper west coast and Tarahiki from east coast.

Only curve ball is 3 Germans my brother in Melbourne has sent my way who might be keen to go out. Not sure when.

Loving this summer weather.
