fishing report 27 june 2017
West coast - Theres been some good fish been coming in over the last week. I had some blokes in the shop the other day who caught 4 john dory, 3 kingis and some good cod off makara in their kayaks last week.
Theres been some nice hapuku getting caught out west at fishermans, makara and ohau.
Inshore the snapper have been biting well south of Makara but have gone a bit deeper further north.
Tarakihi fishing has been pretty consistent off Plimmerton, Mana and around north Makara.
South coast - theres been a real resurgence of bluenose out at the trench recently with nice fish coming in from both sides up to 12kgs. Fitzroy has been great for trevally, gurnard, kahawai and tarakihi. One boat landed 4 trevs there the other day.
The kahawai at the harbour entrance have been in plague proportions.
Harbour - We caught 12 snapper last sunday with a good amount of tarakihi, kahawai and gurnard too. Quite a surprize in a strong southerly. Some nice trevs are getting caught around the leading lights and off Seatoun.
Surfcasting - the return of the mighty red cod has all but the faint hearted shaking in their boots! Point Howard wharf has been seeing alot of gurnard caught on the good days with a mix of couta, kahawai and reddies as well.
Its warehou season - a berley bag off queens wharf should produce 500gm - 1kg warehou thistime of the year and if you want a big one Boom rock or Armchair point could the place to try over the next month.
Makara point is known to produce tarakihi and the odd trevally at this time of the year.
Ocean beach in Palliser bay is a good winter spot for a variety of sharks and scalefish. there may even be the odd snapper and elephantfish there too.
Spotty sharks are a worthwhile target at Wainui, most Wairarapa beaches and off Burdans gate in the harbour.
Its only 6 weeks away till whiebait season, We have nets, waders and screens in stock if ayone's keen
We also have Jimi the fish onsite at the Seaview shop who can do reel/rod maintenance and repairs sometimes on the spot or within a day or two.
