Start of Spring quarterly report from Venturer Charters in Kawhia
Spring is here and a sure thing the fishing is going to start to go off the dial and plenty of bendy rod action again between now and Christmas. As the water starts to warm up the fish start schooling and feeding hard. Generally they start out deep 60-70 meters and to the north of Kawhia and slowly make there way shallower and further south. If your interested in getting into this action then get in and book soon as space is filling fast. Due to sustained cost increases across our suppliers we have had to increase our prices to $160pp including bait and ice. However we do have special whole boat prices.
What's been happening
The winter has been pretty up and down with the weather windows but on the flip side we have had some very good fishing for winter. Most of the action has been south of Kawhia off Harihari and Marakopa 40-60 meters. This is not a area we would normally fish over this time of the year but definitely produced the goods. With many snapper over 10lb also a bit of bycatch Gurnard, Trevally and it wouldn’t be fishing without the good old Kahawai in the mix. Spiney dog have been pretty much off the menu so far.
