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.

I’m pleased to report the last couple of weeks have been pretty bloody good actually, we had a bad spell for a few weeks there, but a break in the weather has seen some good fishing, especially off the west coast. It can still be a bit gnarly out wide, and I don’t have much to report from out at the Trench, but there has been tons of good fishing from mana down to Ohau.

We are still in full-on snapper mode, and when it’s fishable, there are tons of good fish and they appear to be all in close, with surf casters and boaties all withing reach of picking up a good feed. It’s not every trip that comes up trumps, but when the conditions calm down and the bite times are on, there are a lot of good fish being landed.

Kapiti has been fishing pretty well lately. I wouldn’t go so far as to say red hot, but good snapper fishing, some nice kingies, and albacore out wide are all on the cards at the moment. There are even a few skippies around at the moment, we’ve seen them jumping out around the 200 metre mark when we were out the back of Mana looking for hapuka, so you might pick up the odd one if you’re out there targeting albies. Generally fishing has been good out from Waikanai, and Pekapeka, with fish holding between the 30 to 50 metre mark. Surf casters out here have reported some really good catches, but these guys tend to be pretty hard core and fish sometimes through the night, when the fish move in to feed under cover.
