THE WGTN FISHING COMP IS ALL GO THIS WEEKEND
The weather looks good! a bit swelly on the south coast on Friday but it should be all coasts fishable through the weekend. Surfcasters may find it a bit tough with the southerly swell but it will ease through the weekend.
Tickets available from our shops or on eventfinder.co.nz
Theres plenty of fish out there, the snapper are still biting with the odd kingi too. The west has been red hot and the harbour is still producing the odd good fish. Definately fish a bit deepwater when the waters colder.
Deepwater fishing has been a little patchy but the puka are out there if you put the time in. The commercial guys have been getting some good bass and bluenose at the trench and puka on the west coast.
ITS WAREHOU SEASON
Out west its worth targetting warehou at places like Fishermans, Hunters, Boom, and the north and south end of Mana/Kapiti islands - fish up off the bottom with jigs and flasher rigs. We also count to 10, 15 or 20 seconds freespooling ourt lines to find what depth they are hanging out. We catch a few off Island bay, 5 mile, Sinclair and Baring head with smaller ones coming into the harbour.
Gurnard, tarakihi and bluecod fishing has been excellent on the sth and west coasts particularly when the waters been clean. Gurnard and kahawai are still in good numbers in the harbour with a few elephantfish and trevs too.
Surfcasters have been catching nice spotty sharks with a few gurnard and moki on the south and east coasts. Reddies and spineys have moved in with kahawai in good numbers at many spots.
