Wintery weather has made it fairly challenging to get out much, but that in turn is what protects our fishery so it is good when the weather gods inevitably smile.

We’re noticing the puka have dropped away at the moment, and may be welcoming a break from anglers around their spawning time.

There are plenty of bluenose to take their place in the fish bin at the moment so it’s better to target them when you get the opportunity.

Snapper are, as expected, not too prolific at this time of year, and when you do find them they are usually out a bit deeper in 50 – 70 metres.

We have been doing really well on extra heavy weight Jarvis Walker sabiki rigs lately. Everything from gurnard to snapper grab these, and the line is 30 lb with number 4 or 6 hooks, so capable of landing a decent fish.

Give it a go when the fishing is tough, sometimes downsizing a bit works when things are quiet.

Next week looks pretty awful on the weather front as well, so we will be welcoming the opportunity to get our Rongotai store in order with all the stock shipped across from Seaview (10-50% of everything).

Now we are consolidating into one location we have a lot of gear and some really good clearance specials to make some room so feel free to come and have a look while the weather is better for talking about fishing rather than actually doing it.

Harbour fishing might be the go this week and there are plenty of fish around the usual haunts including some decent sized gurnard. Seatoun is my fav place at the moment using crab as bait

I'm primarily chartering on the west coast out from Mana Marina at present

There are three types of trips we commonly book.

Four hour trips targeting snapper, kingfish, trevally, gurnard, bluecod and tarakihi in sheltered water. $120pp or $1400 for the boat ($20pp tackle hire)

Six hour trips which can go a bit further and generally have more consistent fishing. We can also have a shot at some deepwater fishing if you want. $150pp or $1800 for the boat ($30pp tackle hire)

Nine hour full day trips are a mixture of deepwater fishing (hapuku) and inshore fishing. $190pp or $2300 for the boat ($40pp tackle hire)

We also travel to the Marlborough Sounds and Durville Island on overnight trips which start at $385pp. We can do a package deal with accomodation, meals and fishing gear if required or you can bring/organize your own.

At the moment there are plenty of hapuku around in the deep, kingfish and snapper inshore (60-80mtrs) and most other species mixed in for good measure closer in. 

On a 6hr trip we can go south to Makara or north to Hunters bank and sometimes out wide for hapuku. Its generally an inshore fishing trip but we are happy to go deep if everyone on board is keen. 

Our 4hr trips are mainly around Mana island and Pukerua bay. There's good numbers of gurnard, trevally and kahawai with kingfish, snapper and warehou turning up sometimes in numbers
