The days are getting shorter and cooler but the snapper are getting bigger and biting hotter. Yes, we are having some pretty good fishing at present and snapper in the mid-teens are been caught most days. We are finding the 30-40 metre zone now is the magic mark, particularly south of Taharoa.

Fishing has moved into its usual autumn pattern, which is a good thing here at Kawhia! The snapper have been going pretty hard on the bite, as they are getting ready for winter and trying to put on as much condition as they can,

West is best right now. Fishing out of Kawhia is really where the hot action is at currently. The snapper fishing is far better than most of the east coast, and the pelagic species are right in now. Game fishing is going really well at present, with the 100 metre line or thereabouts being the most productive for marlin.

Fishing is going is as hot as the weather at present. The snapper fishing here are absolutely on fire with some very solid units up to 15lb. The main area we have been fishing down off Marakopa in about 45-50 meters but had a try off Aotea Reef a few times, and the results have been much the same but out a little deeper in in 50-60 metres.

Fishing has been a bit on and off for the last few weeks. Fishing around workups has been productive when you can find them, and these can be any depth including right in shallow to 10-50 meters.

Fishing seems to have turned a corner as it has been getting better over the last ten days. We were struggling a bit sometimes, and then boom! in the last five trips we’ve had limit bags and these include some really good fish. I’m not talking great big donkeys, just really nice, solid snapper up to 10 lb which are ideal to give you a good solid fillet without getting too course.
