Fishing addiction - Hauraki Gulf workups

Here's a nice video from the team at Fishing Addiction. Get the gulf on a nice day, with some nice light gear and the latest lures, and she's hard to beat.

We were soon welcomed with gannets diving from the sky and dophins creating a feast of the baitfish for the snapper below. The @presisionangling rods were on form with the help of @varivas singing a sweet tune. And the tunes of @georgefm to finsih out the day on a high

Keep your options open - Winter fishing
Inshore
Winter isn’t always considered the best time for fishing, but it is a long haul between autumn and spring and I spend as much time winter fishing as I do fishing at any other time of the year. It can require a different approach though and there are many more obstacles in the way.

Hector’s and Māui dolphins are among the world’s rarest dolphins. They face a range of human-induced threats, including fishing, seismic surveying and the disease toxoplasmosis. As a result of these decisions, on 1 October 2020, new fisheries measures took effect restricting commercial and recreational set-net and commercial trawl fishing off the west coast of the North Island, and commercial and recreational set-net fishing off the north, south and east coasts of the South Island. In addition, drift netting will be prohibited in all New Zealand waters.

Trout season 2020 -2021 begins on October 1st
Fresh water
Freshwater anglers are eagerly anticipating the start of the new trout and salmon fishing season, which begins on October 1. Early reports indicate there is some excellent fishing to be had this coming season. Licences are available now and the photo on the licence was the winner of the 2020 Fish & Game Fishing Licence Photo competition. Take your camera with you when you go fishing because the competition will begin again in January 2021 with more spectacular prizes to be had. "Getting your licence signals that winter is over, spring is here, and Christmas is coming, which means your favourite little stream, lake or river will be open soon for fishing," Fish & Game New Zealand Chief Executive Martin Taylor says. With more Kiwis holidaying at home this year the time is right to have a go at fishing when you are camping, tramping or just visiting your local lake, river or stream. "Kiwis are exploring New Zealand like never before. Every river you cross is a fishing opportunity. "New Zealand is one of the world's great fishing countries. Our lakes, rivers, and backcountry streams all offer fantastic opportunities to fish for brown and rainbow trout. In the South Island, you can also fish for salmon in many places. "You are never far from the action."
