Latest fishing Report

May 2014

The fishing has been pretty good lately. As soon as this bad weather goes away, look out fish.

South coast - The 30-40mtr mark on the edge of foul has been the go for bluecod and tarakihi with larger specimen in the 50-70mtr mark. XOS teris are also good in the 80-100mtr mark. Some good gurnard and trevs are still getting on the sand in Fitzroy and Lyall bay. A few kingis are still cruising the 100mtr mark. We scored a rare John Dory at Sinclair head last week too. They are not that common on the south coast. Try and fish the edge of a reef area. Both sides of the marine reserve can be good for cod and teris. Baring head is good for cod and teris but is hard fishing with big tides. Turakerei is good for teris (50 – 90mtr) and Karori is good for bluecod (30 – 60mtrs).

The Trench - The bluenose are back form the spawn and some big ones have been caught over 20kg recently. There are still good numbers of hoki too with a few ling in the deeper water. We lost a real stonker of a bass the other day and caught a small one. As usual the outgoing tide has been best for bluenose with the turn of tide best for puka and bass. The main bluenose spot off Baring Head also produced on the incoming tide. The 200mtr Turakerei spot is still producing a few nice puka.
Harbour - There's been a good run of snapper off Point Gordon to Kau bay recently. We caught 45 in 3 trips on the Daniel last week which is the best fishing I’ve seen on the boat. We were fishing 20mtrs on the edge of a little bit foul ground. Falcon Shoal is still the place for tarakihi and bluecod with the odd elephant fish, warehou, trevally and gurnard. Ward Island is still pretty good fishing too at times. The snapper there and along the Eastbourne coastline are still worth chasing. Gurnard fishing is still good from Ward Island along the coast to Pencarrow. For best results try and get the wind with the tide when fishing the harbour
West coast - Snapper fishing has been going off all up and down the coast. If you havnt been catching them I’m happy to email you some spots and info to help you out. The Mana bridge, Pukerua Bay, Plimmerton, sth end of Mana, 50mtr hole, Makara fenceline and Oahu - Tecam points have all been producing. Kingis are still around too with the usual haunts like hunters Boom, north end of Mana, Pukerua on the sand and Wairaka Rise. The Puka out at Fishermans have been coming back as well as the Makara staircase, out wide from Mana and the 4 bumps north of Fishermans. I hear Verns was been great for teris with some good trevs have been caught at Hunters, Pukerua, Tecam and the Mana Bridge.

 

Surfcasting – Carl Angst caught a 7.5 and 8.5kg snapper off the west coast recently. These are my 4 best areas for snaps on the west – south end of Opau bay on the rocks, south of Titahi bay, Wiraka rock at Pukerua bay, Paikakariki and Te-horo beaches. Some good moki have been caught at Oteranga, Long beach and Fitzroy lately. Don’t discount places like Wainui, Corner creek, Windy, batch beach and Cape Palliser. There’s been a good run of large kahawai in the harbour and on the local south coast. Miramar, White rock and Castlepoint are the gurnard hotspots. Spotty sharks have been best at White rock with a few at Corner Creek, Whangamoana and Wainui. Harbour snapper have been around Eastborne, Miramar and Point Gordan. A late season kingi could be taken at Tecam, Boom or Castlepoint
