Good luck. 
I'd look for a good window to fish a few days in a row to find where they are. Not something I've put much thought into YET.

Hi guys, anyone looking for crew? Keen to get down there and get into them, have some gear and game fishing experience too. Looking for a spot on a safety conscious boat, happy to pay my share and also share a few laughs too. Could be available weekdays or weekends. If the bloody weather gives us a chance!! Cheers Karl

We left Weymouth on18th at 730am reached Waihau 420pm Stayed st Carmen's place.
Beautiful 3 bedroom house for 3 of us
Fished Wednesday 19th too rough 1 small run and that was it.
Bck at ramp at 4pm.
Thursday was better weather so lunch at 6am went to 1400mtr drop lures with 15minuts hooked up to a 50kg.
Gaffed fish bleed it put lures down 40minuts late double strike.
Gaffed both fish 25kg n 36kg and pulled the pin bck at ramp midday.

All fish caught on my dad's home made lure which was deadly on Thursday.
Fished gutted n chilled n headed bck home to Weymouth on Friday.
Was a trip to remember

Great result on own lure .Very satisfying. Know the feeling. Lost two of my own a couple of days ago.
I get the feeling that is a vinyl skirt?
