I had a reeeel nice day out on SAT
The water was like glass and my mighty 5hp Merc powered me along like a king!
Only got KY, but strangely, the neighbours were my best friends and got feed on the day...
KY are so underrated.
I have a few nights meal of KY stockpiled.
Cheers

Hi coutta,
I have seen orcas right outside Tauranga harbour entrance twice, and even inside the harbour a few times!

KY are very underrated here, I agree. If they are bled straight away and put on ice immediately they are delicious. I just breadcrumb them, (I pop a bit of piri piri flakes in the breadcrumbs) and drizzle a bit of melted butter mixed with lemon juice and garlic over the top once they are cooked. Everyone in the family loves them. We never freeze them or eat them more than a day old though.

Fishing along there was slow for me too.
I was a bit late getting there & only stayed 'till mid-day, managed 4 snapper.
Didn't see any kahawai schools at all.
Mine were caught on sliders, couldn't get a bite on softbaits.

We caught a couple on softies but the majority on bait drifting in between 8-12m. Pretty slow in the morning but nice little bite around 2.

Uncle I was struggling on softies yesterday at Papamoa while my mate was doing well on sliders. Strong drift too towards Mount so hard to present softies nicely.
