Morning All,

            Last week’s fishing is still bowling on as Summer is never ending,and the weather is relatively calm and apart from a shower on Sunday to remind us Autumn is just round the corner.

We are getting smacked around by the large kahawai everyday the bigger size snapper do take a while to show up through the other schools of fish and as the temp is 20 degrees they are still relatively close inshore.

On Sunday we had so many lines breaking off from Kahawai, Kingfish and the odd Shark I had to go down to using one Hook rigs.
Didn’t slow down the hook up rate just made it a lot easier to bring fish in and control around Riko Riko.

Consider the pro’s you can concentrate on one bait the smaller fish don’t get to dominate for so long.

With our modern lifestyle we expect everything to turn on when we turn up.
Hyper programmes amp you up so much you just have to turn yourself off and get tuned in to reality.
Fishing requires a platform and patience is the key that moves that platform toward bigger fish..
Timing and Season helps it all turn as well
There is no magic mushroom that separates small from big sometimes where the food is the fish are
Big and Small you just have to experience the day to enjoy it

There have been massive tidal flow this week due to king tides hopefully next week will be less.

Also it may pay to bring bigger plastic bags as some fish don’t fit in a supermarket bags!

This week I have 3 spaces left on   Thursday 14th April 10am start

Also plenty of space this Saturday 16th April TBA, Sunday 17th April 10am start.

Have a great week Everybody
