If you think spring fishing is great, this time of the year is proving to be just as good, with flat seas, warm water, very pleasant air temps, and fish biting like nobody’s business. We have had some fantastic fishing over the past few weeks, with as many snapper as you like every day, some of them up to 15 lb.

Recently we have been running some overnight trips targeting snapper, albacore tuna, and marlin. There are plenty of these magnificent fish out there, perhaps the best season for marlin we have seen in many years, with fish in so close we are seeing them when snapper fishing.

The fishing is crazy at present, with limit bags around lunch time, and the snapper are of very good size. Commonly we are getting fish of 40 cm up, and even the odd magic -mark 20lb specimen. They are not too fussy on the bait, but some days squid tends to do better, mostly because it stays on the hook well. Fresh couta and kahawai do have their moments but you have to test if they are into it. You don’t need big baits either, they seem to just pull them off rather than swallow the lot down.

We will start with the harbour first and work our way out. You can stay inside the bar, and here the harbour is fishing very well at present. Near the entrance is good fishing over the last hour at the change of the tides, with fish up to 3 kilos plus, and always the chance of a decent kingfish. Most of the harbour is producing pretty well for a number of species on a whole, including kahawai, gurnard, trevally and of course, snapper.

The fishing has been outstanding over the last couple of weeks, particularly because it can be hard going traditionally at this time of year when the snapper get a bit fussy to do with spawning. Earlier in the month we had been fishing south of Albatross Point covering various depths from 40 to 60 metres and doing ok. In the last few days the 45 – 48 metre zone seems to have been fishing the best.

Well the weather has thrown a wobbly over the last few weeks, and opportunities to get out of Raglan and Kawhia have been very limited. This sort of weather is not what we usually expect to see in December, and is supposed to have passed a few weeks ago traditionally. However, that is one thing that is always out of our control and hopefully we will get a good run soon.
