Easter has been and gone, and with that, the water temp is getting colder. We are all hoping that these easterly winds give us a break at the moment, as it’s making fishing nigh on impossible some days. On the plus side there are lots of small snapper around with the occasional more solid fish coming in as well.

For all you regular boaties, the fishing is great but the price of getting there and back not so much fun at the pump. This month will be a hard one for all industries including our charter fleet in New Zealand, with a lot of people having to stay at home due to Covid it has been a hard haul, and we couldn't have done it without the support of all the awesome kiwis and local fishos. On the plus side, the fishing action is heating up, and with restrictions getting lifted, some relief will come for us charter guys with more anglers turning up from overseas again.

This certainly has to be one of those summers to remember. The Bay has been blessed with a mighty game fish season this year. Whatever factors go into making the gamefish hotspots, the stars have aligned over the Bay for some of the most consistent and exciting action ever on the billfish front. We’ve caught blues, and there are a ton of stripeys out there too. The Ninepin trench fishing like crazy this year, and plenty of fish out wider.

This year we are really in the right place at the right time for game fishing. The season has been on fire, with plenty of fish around including some good blues. Out past the Nine-pin starting in anywhere from 130 metres there are good numbers of fish around all the way to the ninepin trench where the action has really been pretty intense, with double hookups, blue’s and plenty of stripeys lighting up the action.

As we like to expect in summer, up here in the bay, the fishing has been on fire, with some solid snapper being landed both locally in the shallows, and a bit further up the coast. This time of year also brings the on-water traffic, and there can be a great number of boats charging around which can make the fish bite a bit softer.

Hi team. This month up in the bay is shaping up to be as good, if not better than the last few years, which is saying something given that the fishing here continues to be simply awesome usually. Thanks to Covid’s effects on travel, we’ve certainly been impacted as a commercial business, and really look forward to eventually getting more clients up this way to enjoy it with us. Without the tourists, and a large majority of people who want to come up from Auckland and further south, it’s very quiet up north and for the whole region that means less pressure on the fishing.
