Its good to see plenty of albacore getting caught from mana to kapiti recently, some skipjack as well. There's been rumors of some bigger tuna getting hooked but lost and a chance of a billfish this season seeing the waters so warm. New Plymouth caught 10 marlin the week before the king tides.
Snapper and kingi fishing out west has picked up recently. A 26kg and 22kg kingi were caught recently amongst many others.
Surfcasters in the harbour and out west have been doing alright too with fish up to 4.5kgs caught last weekend with one angler catching 7 legal snapper off the shore.
Albacore have been caught out wide from the trench so i wouldnt be surprized if they are caught on the south coast soon, its certainly the time of the year for it
Good luck if your fishing the WSAC shore fishing comp or the Petone workingmans club boat comp this weekend
