4th August
Decided at the last minute to go for a quick fish as I was supposed to go out yesterday but was unable to due to commitments I had forgotten about.
Launched at the Mount ramp at 10:30 and delivered my Trip Report to Tauranga Coastguard, then headed for the 5 mile. into a calm flat ocean.
Setup the Minnkota over a totally random spot that showed good fish near the bottom......could be snaps and maybe Teras.
Literally as soon as the oily barracouta baits touched the bottom it was all on.
Limit caught in just on one hour so pulled the pin and headed back.
Nothing big but all over 32cm.....Tera was a great size.
(Gave a couple of fish to a friend on the way home, thus the lesser fish number in pic.
High tide was at 11:00 am and major bite time was 15:18 - 17:18
02:57 - 04:57






I STARTED THE DAY WITH NO FISH AND I STILL HAVE PLENTY LEFT

So, there were a million trailers at sulphur point on Sunday, but nobody has posted any results?
I caught zilch. I was just in the harbour, but not even a bite.

Did a solo trip across to the Knoll at Motiti first thing Sunday morning, first 6 baits resulted in hooking 6 school sharks, up anchor and moved to another spot, same thing again. Stuff that went chasing Terakihi, got 14 plus a lone snapper. Time to go out deep and try to get some puka, no puka but got 5 nice gemfish. So overall a great day out, first for a couple of months. Freezer full of vacuum packed fish again.

A bit further north, but we spent the day looking for a Tuna.

Yeah I'm a bit slack. Looked at Middle ground, Norms and The Quarry. Fish some sign at MG for lots of undersized snaps and 2 reasonable snaps on the strayline. Move to a Karewa terakihi reef for more small snaps. Home by lunch after travelling 27nm, but a beaut morning out there with a good mate
Simon's situation was grave so he used gravy.
