Good work Yellafin on the Snaps - at what depth were you getting them?
 
Ritchie - pressed the fire extinguisher into service as a Puker basher on Saturday - have given Andrew a call to see about getting my own piscatorial attitude changing device.

Trench was totally flat, no wind for 4 hours. Very small current as well. We fished off the headland for blue cod and the lines went straight down (while drifting).

Probably 10 drops or so 200-150m. Big schools of fish showing on the sounder, 10m off the bottom and 20-30m thick. Dropped a jig and pulled up a rays bream out of the school. Unfortunately it dropped off the hook at the surface with a wiggle of it's tail. That's now my first jigged bluenose and rays bream both dropped at the boatCry

Chatted to a big steel hulled yatcht and they weren't catching anything either. Took home a dozen large sea perch and a few blue cod for the table. Saw seals, dolphins and albatross but the weather was too calm for the wellies fish to be biting.

Water temp was 13

edit. few pics of the mint (weather not fishing) day

Scarpies on!


Dead calm at the trench all day....

have you tried a diamond eye? get the 500g for the deep. caught blue nose and puka, all good. we add a pilly or a loligo squid and maybe add an extra hook slightly longer as well. i don't normally clump the bait on the hook like on the vidLOL

Dad's school holidays continue today with a cheeky dash to Mana wide. Forecast 15knt n followed by 15knt s meant a small window hopefully?

Armed with trusty fishing companion, Scott (he who bears bananas) I ventured out west on the last available day of gardening leave. It has been an awesome time with much work on the house, playing with the kids and fishing.

We arrived at Mana with a super full tide coming all the way up to the concrete. A stiff breeze passed through the flax. Launching was a little tricky but managable. Only two other trailers in the car park, mainly gym members getting a workout. On the water it was 15-20knts northerly.

We ran to hongieke bay (sp). A fish on the sand for a bit to wait for the wind change. Burley on the anchor and burley in the wobbley pot. Cray bodies, kahawai, Yellow tail macks, bomb, squid, old pillies.  In 10m. Gurnard for Scott first drop. A dropped ky for me and watch the southerly clouds come over the hills.

As the wind dropped we made the call for a dash wide. 5m fibreglass 60hp meaning a quick dash and back asap was the mission. It was lumpy heading out with a strong current line (strong tides). Getting to the spot (23 about 2km west of north mana) we managed about 5 drifts in 150 -170m.  A couple of red cod, no scarpies and a couple of strong bites hooked up for a couple of minutes. A braid around the prop and one decent puka.

After my PB fish (14.2kg) I also rated highly as an experience the extraction of a spiny dog spine. Taken from my finger after about 2 months (D'urville wound).

Wellington fishing rocks.









Looking forward to the weekend after easter for the next shot out wide (ish).

Many a meal for the Brentons and the Kellys.

Hapuku stir fry & pan rroast hapuku.

Pan roast hapuka

Heat cast iron pan (or other oven suitable heavy based pan) to very high with high temp oil smoking.
Add fish skin side down. Fry till browned (2-3m). Turn over and put into the oven for 3 mins. Take out when not quite cooked (fish will finish cooking on the plate). 
Serve skin side up.

Your lucky rig Mr Wavecrusher.Tongue. I must drop it back shortly. The gape of the hook was only just bigger than the bone around the puka's lip. I think bigger hooks are required...
