so we had a plan + it worked out well.
launched 7am at the bridges + went left to ohau water temp 14.5 so set longlines in25-30mtres down ohau way + surprisingly 17 snaps later + all good size.
shot out to 189 puka hole but tide was racing about 7kmh but managed to back up ok but no puka.
back in to ohau 50mtres for an few cod but a bit lumpy + swelly.
what we did see out by the 189 puka spot was a 100kg mako jump right clear of the water about 100mtres  away tail right out of the water never seen that before.
great day out did about 90km + still had a bit of gas in the 45 litre tank

Hope everyone's coping with lockdown ok. Fairly messy on the coast so not really feeling like I'm missing much. 


Was wondering if this halt to fishing pressure might make next summer extra good...got to look for that potential silver lining :-)

A day of gear maintenance for many I'm picking...

Yep, tied about 15 ledger rigs then decided it was time to do something else :/

Tomorrow is crimping up livebait rigs.

Then, erm, dunno. Maybe service a reel.

Might be doing something similar tomorrow...loads of pulley rigs to tidy up/remake. I see the longliner is in very close tonight in Kapiti and seems to be going further S than usual too...hope theres something left for the rest of us when lockdown is over. He'll have a bouncy night if he's fishing through

Same to you Davo: hope you are setup nicely for lockdown.
I thought exactly the same in terms of lower pressure: all those nice undersie snappers that were getting caught constantly in the harbour will have a great chance to grow and get back in a couple years time....

Stay safe,
Peppe

Well fishos been a while since I posted on here, not fishing much lately but bought a new boat late last year, some of you may recognize it. Also been busy over lockdown making a new bar leaner. See above.

Made a new filleting bench ready for the fishing when we can finally get out again.

Yip that's right, Its Matt's old Black Pearl.
But its had some mods.

New seats added

New toilet, sound system and a few other goodies.

Hope to catch up with a few of you down mana ways after lockdown.
Stay safe everyone.
I always take life with a grain of salt, ...plus a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila.

So that's where it ended up! Great stuff, very very capable boat.

My latest report: Went and lay on the beach with a surfcaster at Breaker Bay. Caught a spotty. I'm bloody terrible at this land-based stuff.

Boat in getting serviced (100 hours in a year, feels like a decent effort for Wellington) so we're ready to go as soon as we're allowed to get out there.

Tied a boatload of rigs up over the lockdown, tackle box is brimming, got a pile of jigs on special... looking forward to some mid-May Kingfish action.

Put the boat in the sea.

Removed several fish from the sea, only some of which then went back into the sea once more.

Good to be back on the water!

Water temp 14.9 degrees on the south coast. West surely warmer? Hopefully this means some of the more "Summery" species are still around - plan to find out this weekend.

Good fishing today. Went west. Southerly honking, fortunately coming off the hills so we could tuck in a bit. Water temp mid-15s. Started slow but once the tide got moving we were into them, pile of Snapper, most of which were a reasonably solid size.

Best of all, zero spineys, carbetbaggers, or any of those other undesirables. Couple of coutta was about all that bothered us other than Snapper and Kahawai.

Went out in Welly harbour on Sunday morning (4 hours total), got 2 snappers, three gurnards and over 40 spiny dogs: those buggers totally trashed most of my rigs/hooks. Still happy to be out there... water temperature was 12.5-13.0 degrees.

Cheers,
Peppe

Sort of, Davo :)
However, weather seems to play a huge role, at least for me: went out yesterday too, but got zilch (just a couple of undersize blue cods). Sea state very calm, and plenty of boats around on both sides of high tide (there was a huge amount of them, counted 15-16 in a small patch, off Point Gordon), but did not really see many catches.
Water was really cold (11 degrees or so), and got morning frost too, making for quite challenging fishing/comfort conditions.

Cheers,
Peppe

Hey Peps,

Kapiti is looking good monday/tuesday. Im hoping to pop out there tuesday (boats getting its first service monday)

I grew up boating out off the island but havent been out there for 10-15years. We always got a feed of cod off north end, never really needed to go anywhere else. 

I never saw snapper out there (most of my fishing is wangas base now, all we get in snaps) any spots we should try? Ill be launching off waikanae beach I think

Cheers

Saw plenty of boats out off Kapiti. We had good success off the back of browns Island with terikihi and blue cod. We popped round the back of Kapiti for a few snapper and more blue cod. 

We tried north end round midday but came up with nothing, she was flat as a lake coming home. 

Hope others had a good time

Neil

So peps Fridays forcast was marginal, however me and a mate had the day off so was worth driving south to have a wee look. We hit Raumati Beach at around 9, and wanted to try a wee boat ramp off jeep rd. We launched fine was low tide and the car are boat were below the ramp to launch.

As we headed out took a couple of decent waves and then motored threw 1.5m swell and slight chop but was comfy enough at 17-18 knots just cruising. 

We tucked in behind browns and went slightly E of the back endy rocks - was out of most of the 15knts wind......Saw some actual sign in my finder (still learning) and placed the ancor just right - on terrys instantly, stayed on for a good hour or so. Got the feed we needed, just as the bite started to slow I tried my Kabura slider......bamm hit by a decent blue cod.....second drop.....bigger bamm, bigger blue cod......47cm - biggest I have landed by a mile.

Those Kabura sliders are amazing spec when the bite slows...... they either fire HARD or nothing happens cause there is no fish.....last fish it landed was a 24lb snap......

Headed home to the ramp but the waves were breaking on the ramp....didnt like the though of bashing my boat into a trailer or off the concrete....so I dropped my mate into the shallows (ish) and he grabbed the car, we beached at Raumati and put it on the trailer softly.

the Fishing forcast and weather forcast was average, but for just on 2 hours of fishing in the right spot it was perfect.

get out there!

Surely people have been out this weekend? I worked but am heading out tomorrow.

What’s worked - where you been ?
