There’s some great looking weather windows and nice small tides coming up, so a good time to get out there and into it. Evans bay has been producing some good snapper this week. Kapiti coast and Palliser Bay have been quiet but don’t write them off. There’s still a good chance of finding fish in numbers and the odd big snapper at this time of year.

The surfcasting has just come back on big time in the last couple of days. It’s been great after a quiet patch through the full moon phase and southerlies, to see the fish come back on nice and strong. It seems to be a bit better from Paraparaumu north up to TeHoro, rather than south where it was previously firing. One of our staff limited out up there last night after dark, but there is still plenty of good fishing before dark, and you can still get them if the tides and other factors play ball.

Well given the last few weeks has been pretty punishing with the southerlies taking their toll on fishing conditions, and definitely dropping the temp, there’s not as much to report as I would like 😊 From the shore, up further north has been fishing really well for spells, then turning off to dead for a while. Pretty hard to pick why, although the full moon in the last few days is certainly a likely factor.

With the weather offering us a few good days and more than a few bad ones, we might wish for January back at the moment, but coming into autumn there are often good settled spells, so fingers crossed. Last week was pretty good fishing, and we are on a bit of a roll south end of Mana at the moment. No matter what the tide was doing, fishing was pretty solid, and targeting in a bit shallower and fishing some back eddies we were able to pick up some really nice snapper. Around the area there’s also some very good tarakihi, trevs, blue mackerel, kahawai and of course the odd good kingy. Turn of the tide there gives us the opportunity to shoot out deeper and target the puka, which has been reasonably successful with consistent results not always in the same spots as the fish move around.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been blessed with some of the best fishing weather you could hope to get, and long may it continue hopefully. The buzz in Wellington has been around the schools of bluefin that have been around and possibly have now started to tail off having passed through on their way up north. They are still around, but a little harder to get onto now.

Happy new year all, and welcome to another summer in the calm fishing paradise of the Wellington region. Just a quick update before we get a good period of settled weather top try and get a better handle on how our summer action is going to shape up. To be fair, considering the rest of the country is seeing some wind thanks to our January cyclone, Wellington is not alone with limited fishable windows, and with some interesting turn ups for the book when you do manage to get out.
