Sure, so long as there's a "least fish caught" or "most kahawai accidentally dropped over the side" category!

Migration of snapper- I once spoke with a guy who was tagging snapper for MAF. He told me that a fish he tagged one day near Brown Island was caught two days later off Tauranga

I reckon that would be a grand idea Kitno.
I would be keen
I'll keep a tally of positive replies/suggestions over the next little while.

Tried up the harbour last night by the Matapehi railway bridge. Loads of small snapper, gentle current in the shallows and not much weed. Only 2 keepers but a mangnificent evening

Can anyone tell me if they use softbaits successfully in the harbour and if so do you anchor up or drift?

Hi there barafat, yeah I've done both drift and anchor, had more success drifting but have caught doing both !
Have caught snapper, kingfish and plenty of kahawai usually drifting the channels sand banks or wharfs , if there's a couple of people capable of controlling the boat in a drift ,don't by shy about drifting between the boats moored at pilot bay. to our surprise we got 2 limits through there one evening mid summer last year
