Fishing is just one of those things that goes up and down, some with factors we know about like full moon, temperatures and tidal run, and some factors that will forever remain a mystery affecting the way our favourite target species behave. Spots that fish hot one day are almost dead the next at the moment, but luckily there are a few areas that are more consistent and that is where it pays to start. We can never expect every day to be grouse for fishing but that’s why we love it. With a line in the water anything is possible, and just like gamblers we all roll the dice waiting for the good times to roll our way.

Happy New Year! Even though we are experiencing a lot of wind, the upside is that once you do get out there, the water temp is nice and warm, and the fishing is generally pretty good It doesn’t always mean the fishing is going to be easy but if you do your homework or know the good areas to fish you should catch a good feed at this time of the year.

Into summer now and it’s 17.5 degrees warm in the water. That means fish get active and we are seeing plenty of that. Heaps of snapper and kings in all usual haunts you would expect to find them. That is, where they are usually supposed to be, but often are not, they are now  Weather always up and down but fishing pretty good when you can get out as per usual.

Despite some howling winds, there are a lot of positives to be taken out of this week when it comes to the fishing. Before the big blow we had some good action, and there is likely more to come in the next week or so. Hapuka are back on the chew and some good numbers have been taken from both out west and south out in the Trench, so it looks to be gearing up already for a bumper season if we are lucky.

There’s big bluenose action out at the trench at the moment. These stalwarts of the deep are always a great catch for the table and we’ve seen some good numbers of nice fish getting caught if you can get the weather and the time off to cooperate with each other.

It’s spawning time for the snapper between now and early in the new year so they will be moving in closer to do their thing. Many people don’t realise the snapper move in, and when you can find them they tend to feed voraciously and can be quite easy to catch.
