We had a nice morning on the water on the 30th, started the day off targeting Kingis and picked up a reasonable one ~15kg on the third drift, shot back to the bridge to try for some snapper with the 20 or so other boats around there, we were catching nothing but Kahawai and Barracouta when a pack of big green fish followed one of the coutta up, kept the coutta in the water to keep them interested while we rigged a big bait and biffed it at them, the result being another Kingi on board slightly larger than the first. Decided that was more than enough fish for our 2 families so pulled the pick and on our way home by 9:30.

Headed out looking for tuna on Tuesday - none caught but the blue water behind kapiti was 17+ degrees. Caught plenty of fish though - snaps, blue cod, tiks, gurnard and a plague of ky. Nice to see the orcas too. Pity about the rain - got completely soaked...need better rain gear

Had a beaut couple of hours on the harbour yesterday before the southerly front came in, got 5 carrots (1 went back, legal but wtf do you do with a 26cm Gurnard) in pretty quick succession, nice to be on the water and yum tea to boot.

Hi guys
Just back from 2 weeks in Napier and took the boat. Got the intel on the local hotspots (Otoio Bluff, Springs, Razorback ridge, 90 foot gurnard etc) and burned **** loads of gas. Bloody tough fishing with a few terriers and snaps each trip. The locals are saying the bay has been tough for the last few years and they are right. Whilst out had purseiners dragging past us hoovering up everything. Anyway glad to be back and with another week off looking forward to getting into it here. Is the trench turning up anything at the minute?

Hit the water before first light on Saturday, got a dozen Gurnard between 2 of us - anything under 30cm went back so 5 gurnard each made for more nice dinner between 2 families! Caught a bunch of Kahawai too, some small (prime livebait size), some quite large which went home to be smoked.
Caught a surprising number of mackerel too... we popped one out as a livey but didn't have any balloons and after it took a lap of the boat and made one epic tangle it got turned into strip baits :P

We had success in 22m with 10kg of burley in a heavily weighted wobbly pot. Consistent bite for most of the outgoing tide peaking just before slack water.

Not too many kahawai which was nice. 3 gurnard. 1 Trev on the little jitterbug in a ky work up. The jitterbug also caught the biggest snap. Best 8 snaps around 3kg.

Tried strayline with little reward. Hard trying to weight correctly in the strong current.

Wee Ramco with the 4-stroke Yammy?

Nice nice, I haven't actually fished that spot but I've heard it's good for tiks.

Back to work this week but bloody keen to get out West and chase some more Kingis :D

Hi all

I have just moved back from the rat race, after three years. Just wondering how the fishings been, and if all the old haunts are still going well, Verns,Hunters,Tarapunga etc.

Also is anyone here a member of Mana Cruising Club? I just want to kno wheher it gets as busy as the public ramp there, and also if the ramp is an all tide ramp, as I need @ 700mm to float my boat off the trailer.

Cheers guys.

Hi Kyle

Still plenty of fish at those spots.

Mana is an all tide ramp but can get bllody busy on a fine day. Best to get there early for a park.

hard to deal with when you feel like throttling the poor buggers who have to present the weather reports on tv etc which forecast wind and wind and wind, but - as has been said many times before - at least it offers some protection to the well region fishery

pour me another one nurse

Finally got my first WN fish of the spring/summer. Yes, there's plently of hungry kingis in the harbour! Great fun and good to run the boat before going out Sth or West - though this might be a while awhile given the bl**dy forcast.

Nice work and great fun especially working out one's solo systems. We just need the weather to settle down now.
