Trip Summary

Winter has well and truly arrived with some very unsettled and now cold weather. There is however some good fishing to be had. Snapper are in good numbers in the bay with some good fish being caught in the shallows and plenty on the deeper rocks. Often coming with a good by catch of trevally to go with them. We have had a few terakihi in the bin lately as well, which is very nice! There are still not a lot of kingies in the bay with the best fishing to be had out on the deeper reefs or around the outer headlands. Fat and beautiful! The majority of the sharks have now gone but there are still a few lurking around on the outer reefs. The marlin have gone but there are still some swords being caught with a couple of nice ones hitting the scales in the last few weeks when the weather has allowed. Now there is good time for the hapuku on the deeper reefs with the cold water coming! Good luck out there. Tight lines
