Kiwifred, it works like this....
Throughout Mon thru to Fri, there are more cars on the road as people drive to and from work. The moisture from their exhaust rise up to form rain clouds which finally burst on the weekends. On Monday, the cycle starts again.
 
In short I haven't got a clue.

LOL
 
that sounds like a valid reason
 
doesnt explain the wind
 
might have something to do with a certain round building in town though

Hi all Yakka's

Well the Capital city weather is do'in it to us again.Primo conditions again mid week to tempt us to pull a sickie. The weather isn't look'in crash hot for the weekend.....typical. I see there was a 7kg snap caught, by the Falcon Shoals area (Wgtn Harbour) last week. Thats an area where I fish often with succees. So there should be a few more turning up especially in September, so get 'em.

Erik,
 
Look at http://www.centreport.co.nz/publications/marine_infosheet.pdf page 5 for the Falcon Shoal Beacon.
 
I've never fished there but have heard that you need to be wary of the ferry going through the area. I guess you should be fine on the west side of the beacon.
 
Cheers.

Sooshee is correct, at times you have to dodge the ferries.You can launch from Seatoun or north @ Scorching Bay you'll see a red marker pole. Take a line south from this to Seatoun wharf and you will cover over some foul ground. This is worthy site to put in you favourites if you don't have it already, to check on harbour conditions........

hi all
 
anyone get out over the weekend???
 
i went for a paddle this afternoon at about 2:30pm headed out to somes. was a little lumpy with the southerlie but ok and the wind died out after an hour so it all flattened out pretty good. was pretty much dead low and a few rocks exposed that i hadnt seen before and all covered in huge mussels. also shallow enough to see paua on the floor in places but generally looked to be undersized ones. two seals over there today and also looked like the yakity yak club was out. passed them on the way out. about 6/7 people. lots of boats around and divers still frequenting the island.
 
really notice the days getting longer with the sun still out at 5pm when i got back. took the camera and took a couple of pics of the seals and the shag colony on the small island north of somes lots of chicks.
never really noticed them there before 
 
thats about it hopefully the weather is going to get better now spring is approaching

popped out this morning and had a look and it was flat calm with no wind. thought to myself cool and flat enough to take my boy out. rushed home got ready and headed out. change of plans with the boy on board headed for soames isl. halfway there the wind started to get up but can shelter on the south side so no biggy. got there and set up. wind was swirling round so was drifting around a lot. after about half an hour thought the wind was getting to strong so headed for home into a head wind the whole way. white caps everywhere and the boy was loving every minute as we were crashing through the waves and taking on heaps of water. the good thing was the waves get smaller the closer you get to shore finally got back and the both of us were soaked with the spray and waves washing over the yak. looks like the weather forcast got it a bit wrong. was supposed to be not much wind with it dying down in the afternoon.

You're not having Bob back Smile.
 
Seriously, if you want to borrow him for a fish, you are most welcomed. He is sitting in the garage a little under-utilised at the moment (roll on summer!). I must warn you, Bob had a bit of "Doctor 90210" done on him.

Hey there, went out for a land based fish today and man was that wind unpleasant - froze my nuts off at minamura pier. Both windguru.cz and the metservice.co.nz sites were way off on their forecasts. Is that just the norm for wello or is there more accurate forecasting somewhere else?
Anyway managed to get 2 spotties and a blue cod on a plastic :P which was a nice break in for my first NZ session.

Cheers
Peter

ps will have the yak sorted weekend after next.

Hi All
 
went out today as the weather was ok. headed for somes to shelter from the wind but no joy and to top it off nearly got run down by a nosy launch which changed direction to come over and see me and nearly swamped me with there wash. so up anchored and moved off to bluer water and was promptly into kahawai just kept the one for a feed as they all were a bit on the skinny side. the one i kept went 2kg. noticable that they are lacking condition as the fight was short and not much in it and no trouble with the light gear. got back just on dark.
 
must be just about time for another gathering of the Wellington Kayak Fishing Club to discuss some get togethers etc. I will drop in at canoe and kayak and have a chat with Jim and Andy to see when he next meet is planned for and will post it when i know
 
Regards Erik
