Just a quick update to last week's report. Wind is still playing a factor in preventing consistent time on the water, and we have only been out once or twice since the last report, and fishing has continued to be pretty successful, with tarakihi, puka and kingies out at the Hunter Bank.

Getting a break from the wind. Not so easy at this time of year, and true to form some decent time on the water has been pretty hard to come by of late. On the brief occasions we’ve managed to get out, fishing has been pleasantly successful, with terakihi, puka and kingies all playing ball out at the Hunter Bank.

Fishing is great at the moment. Particularly for snapper, that is pretty weird as we normally expect them to just be gone at this time of the year. Not so at the moment, there are snapper being caught just about anywhere around Wellington, and in the harbour there’s a huge proliferation of juvenile fish. Give these guys a couple of years and if all goes well there should be some awesome fishing in the harbour. Point Gordon is the place to be currently, the deeper hole off there that drops off around 25 metres seems to congregate them, along with a few decent sized blue cod.

It’s fair to say the weather has been pretty nasty to us over the last few weeks and getting out fishing has been out of the question. However, when we do get these big snaps come through you can always count on some good fishing out the other side. Before the big fronts, the fishing was pretty good, full on all over the place.

Well, we’re into June, and it’s officially feeling like winter in Wellington a lot of the time at the moment. One thing is still hot though, and that’s the snapper fishing. The boaties have been having a better time of it as they can get out a bit deeper to clearer water, but there’s still good fish coming in from the surf casters. You still have to put the time in but there are some really good fish around on all coasts and in Wellington harbour. Top spot has been fishing the Bridge at Mana, with four really great trips in a row out there, catching decent snapper as well as trevs, kingies and gurnard.

Plenty of snapper and kingis still about in Wellington for boaties and shore fishos alike, and its showing no signs of slowing down, although kingis can be a bit harder to catch off the shore now. West coast – Pukerua bay and Kapiti have been the hotspots for snapper lately with fish up to 18lb taken recently. Hunter’s was going off for kingis the other day, but other usually good places like Boom, the north end of Kapiti and south end of Mana are still producing a few as well.
