Fished Thursday - bloody minkota remote died so was on the drift - caught fish at Gisborne point right next to ramp, and at Moose lodge. Insane bite there- had about three or 4 boats around us and at one time 4 people hooked up at once! Fish up to 3.1kg and at one time looked like 100 fish under the boats .

Friday the moose lodge fish had scattered - still picked up 5-6 there right up in shallows - 15-20m on the drift. Went across lake northern side and picked up another 3-4 in random spots following smelt schools was order of morning but fishing harder for sure.

Set myself a new PB for shallowest fish caught jigging on the weekend, 8m haha. Caught a few in 10 - 15m off Gisborne point also. Tried around Hinehopu end too, few on the sounder around the slip etc but they weren't interested...

Yes we met up with Pat Swift not far from the slip, transformer  to start with - he had 5-6 to 7lb there - early thur am.
Yes i have never caught fish that shallow - we just followed the split up smelt schools into the shallows with fish arch or two over them.
Good fun and probably one of the best bites this year at moose lodge thur early pm - they vanished overnite though.
