Nice Rob. The kahawai weren't interested in our green lures. I'll know what colour to run next time I'm out.

Headed out at 4 this arvo and managed to miss the mad post Xmas rush. Got on top of the silver and blacks after a couple of attempts. Picked up 15 and back in by 6.30. Another enjoyable experience with the teenage daughter asking when she can come out again.

Nice work Dave.

We had a crack at an early season Tuna on 27th... Out to the aldie knoll, but only a small albie for our travels, still good sashimi when you can steal a mouthful off the kids!

Got a half dozen good snaps at the aldies on the way in on soft baits.

Then took the kids out yesterday, inside of slipper, and had a play with a few kahawai and a couple of small snaps.

Hard work yesterday (earthquake near Seddon?) Hooked 4 x kahawai near Castle. A cheeky mako came in and devoured one right at the back of the boat. Moved in to just behind Slipper. A steady stream of small snapper caught and returned. A mako devoured one of these too, leaping clear out the water twice in the process. A couple of good size (5 kg+) skippies out wide. Water temp was 19.5 deg.
Beer: the most important meal of the day.

Took the troops up to Cathedral Cove this morning and wanted to catch a few Kahawai to try out the new smoker on the way home. Well good luck with that. Struggled to find anything that resembled birds working and Castle was as dead as I have ever seen it. Arrived home with 1 Porae, 1 blue cod and 1 silver and black. Still a good day out. May be next time.

Not fishing news, and I'm not sure what happens elsewhere but another great fireworks display in the Tairua harbour to celebrate the new year.

Heaps of boats at present. Will start to quieten by the end of next week. By the end of the month the fishing will have picked up again and you'll have options galore. Primo place.

Shot out for a few hours yesterday. Picked up 6 blue cod up to 40cm in 40m behind Slipper. Then cracked it with the terakihi an hour before the low. Im picking the little silver and blacks will be heading deeper very shortly so good to get a few before they do. Another great day with a heap of boats out making the most of the weather.

Puke, low is 0730 tomorrow morning. You will be fine in a trailer boat either off the sand next to the marina or on the concrete ramp by the main wharf (although retrieving in a cross current can be a little tricky here.) Bar is flat as - been no swell for weeks!

You can usually put know up yellow tail on the sand at the south end of Pauanui beach. Have a look around and they'll show up on your sounder.

There a couple of Pins just a bit further south. We picked up a few good size kings there on livies over the new year. Not far to go for something to fill the smoker.

After watching the swell on line all week we grabbed our opportunity today. On the water by 8 and headed up north of boat harbour. Was on the lookout for Fletch's stripey that had been giving the Kahawai off Tairua beach beach a hiding. No kahawai let alone marlin - maybe we were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Had our baits in the water by 8.30 and got a few early fish. The second hit 50cm so we thought we were in for a good sesh. Was hit and miss after that and ended up with 10 nice fish and a 40cm Blue Cod. We seem to get a few most times were in the water.

Good morning and headed home to Toby Keith blasting out of the speakers.

Had another look around Tairua beach on the way in but the [email protected]@dy thing was still avoiding us.

Spoke to a few who had covered many miles out wider for very little return.

I'll be back next week for another crack. Hopefully the weather holds.
