There’s plenty happening out there this week. The easterly winds have been pretty fresh, but very fishable as there’s not so much swell. We have been fishing in around the forty-seven to fifty-five metre zone south of the bar leads, and getting some very nice snapper, and plenty of gurnard. There’s a lot of folks that prefer gurnard to snapper for the table, so getting a few good sized grunters on board is a welcome addition to the catch.

Fishing is running really hot at present, in fact so hot this story line almost sounds like it would be a spring fishing report. The last week’s fishing has been so amazing, catching limit snapper daily by lunch time or very early in the afternoon, and good size averaging three to eight kilos.

Despite the weather being a bit up and down, we did fish all of the long weekend. The fishing has been great for this time of the year, with plenty of snapper allowing limit bags commonly. On the slower days, there are lots of gurnard around at the moment, and they can be a great size often jumping on the dropper rigs two at a time.

Well it’s great to get back out on the water, and as expected the fishing is all go with limit bags common on our first week back in action. There are plenty of pannies about, and good patches of smaller fish that are really good for that perfect eating size fillet.

As luck would have it eh! The fishing would have no doubt been magic over the first 10 days of lock down, you just can’t beat still days and big snapper out west. Don't want to get into politics too much. What does the future hold? Well the world and NZ are going to be a very different place compared to a few weeks ago.

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.
