The Daniel 62ft Charter Vessel

Im not running the Daniel past October 2017 this year. It is currently on the market, If you've got vouchers or wish to come out on one of its last charter voyages give me a call and make a booking sooner rather than later. Im not sure if I'll be running charters this season. I'll make a call after the sale of the boat.

I'll be looking at possibly doing a few charters on another boat in Wgtn and maybe a few more landbased adventures, seminars as well as spending time at the shops and the fish bait business.

If any ones keen on buying her the details are listed here -  http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1356089199

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

FISHING REPORT
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.
OTHER STUFF
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.

Where have all the blue moki gone? last year was a tough one for surfcasters target ting these excellent sport and eating fish. lets hope the stocks recover this season and there are plenty for everyone. Moki are a fussy eater choosing shellfish and crustacean baits rather than fish bait. They feed after dark on shingle beaches or on the edge of a weedbank, wharf pile or similar. turn of light is often the best time but they also feed during daylight hours as well.

There's a lot of talk and hype around lure and softbait fishing. I haven't had huge success in wgtn but with more effort and a change in tactics they can be really successful. The smaller lures work really well on most species of fish. Using lighter line also helps making the lure look more natural. This season Id like to try out the new lures on the market like microjigs, sliders, inchiku and knuckle jigs. Putting a small piece of bait on the jig hook helps immensely although the lure fishing purest wont agree but it can make the difference of a catch or not. Using erratic jigging styles, yo yo, fast, slow and everything in between can be a good way to go until you find what works on the specie of fish your after and the terrain your fishing.

 

Summers here!

The water temp has risen a couple of degrees lately so fish like snapper and kingfish are turning up as well as good numbers of bluenose and hapuku. currently its around 16 degrees in the harbour and sth coast and 17 on the west coast. It can all change with the southerly but things are certainly warming up.
