Got to mana ramp on Saturday just before everyone else turned up. Stopped for 3 hours at the 30 metre spot between mana island and plimmerton, slow fishing, some kahawai, a couple gurnard and spinys, moved deep to 48m North end mana, current was slower, after 45 min fish suddenly came on the bite , had a triple hookup, 1rod a gurnard, 2nd rod a decent snapper, strayline rig had a legal kingie, after that a steady stream of gurnard , snapper and spinys, forcast good for this weekend

Tuna this year all seem to be around the 5 - 6kg mark. But quite plentiful. Fished the tunatastic comp and we landed 15 fish, with one winner. All north of kapiti.

Absolutely stunning afternoon on the water.

Binned up on Tarakihi at Verns, once we found the fish on the reef it was just non-stop on them. Lots of quite chunky fish amongst them.

Perfect conditions on the drift, just enough tide to gently carry us up the reef.

More diving than fishing, but I while I was out on the wellington south coast today I saw a bunch of kingfish (10+) smashing a shoal of mackerel. Plus big shoals of big Moki. and plenty of crays :) All within shore diving distance.

Shot down to Vern's during the brief window of calm weather this morning.

Really nice conditions but extremely quiet fishing.

Water temp still fairly high at 15.9 degrees, I know people were catching Snapper around Mana.

Well, the conditions were nowhere near as good as forecast, but I had adjusted work around a morning's fishing so that's what we were doing.

Down to Verns once again, where we found another 10 or so boats already parked up.

Quiet at first until the tide got going a little, then fairly consistent with one or two Tarakihi on each drift. The fish were concentrated over a few very small areas of the reef, so you were either on them or got nothing at all.

Picked up a reasonable Snapper on the first drop of the day, and a big boofy Blue Cod as well to round out a good bin of fish.

Water temp still around the 14 degree mark.

Fantastic afternoon on the south coast today, not often that you see it that calm, and the timing of the tide was just right for some nice slow drifts in deeper water.

Did quite well on Blue Cod using those new Baku Baku sliders - the annoying bycatch type fish seem to leave them alone, and the cod are actually a bit of fun on light bendy jigging gear.

Fished the harbour for a while this afternoon. Yes, it was rough as guts, gusting over 20kn makes things interesting in a small boat.

Good feed of fat Gurnard though. Solid bite until the berley ran out. Could have thrown another bomb down but it was getting decidedly rough.

Caught a few jack macs as well, so it feels like it will be Kingfish time in the harbour soon.

Two really good weekends fishing in a row.

23rd we hit the south coast in the afternoon, didn't drop the anchor or a berley bomb all afternoon, just drifted over promising looking sign which produced a solid bin of medium sized Tarakihi and a couple of good Blue Cod too. Tried slow-jigging briefly but the South Coast Sailfish were around in plague numbers and I gave up with that after having a set of assist hooks snipped off the jig. Probably trashed another half a dozen flasher rigs too but they cost me $2 each instead of $20 like a good slow jig.

30th we went out West with most of Wellington, we got to the ramp at 6am and got the second to last trailer park at the bridges. Plan was a jig (me) and livebait (my old man, who is not so much of a jigger) mission to Hunters. Livies proved tricky to get, we had to move around a bit to get away from the 15cm juvenille Snapper. Macs were on the smaller side too but we eventually had 9 or 10 chilling out in the tank so cruised out to Hunters over the remaining swell.

First drop dad's livie got a fairly soft take in 35m that turned into a pup Hapuka. Couple of drifts later an initially firm hit on another livie that soon went a bit limp was initially called for a Barracouta but up popped a solid 50cm JD, yum. I somehow foul hooked a Warehou on the jig and followed that up with a good eating sized Kingfish around 90cm, leaving us with a very decent mixed bag. Shot into Pukerua Bay to see if the Snapper were around, slow fishing but a couple of hours scored us two pansized Snapper and a couple of Gurnard to round things out.

Paid some attention to the fuel flow for once - Suzuki DF70A on Stabi 1550, 7.8LPH @ 18kn gentle cruise 2-up with plenty of gear, giving us a range of right on 200km from 2x 23L tote tanks (or, being able to go Mana - Hunters - Puk - Mana on about half a tank...) Not bad, I reckon.

Thanks for the update - that's a nice mixed bag alright - a 50cm JD is a nice one for sure and agree totally - they're great eating!
