LATEST FISHING REPORT
What a great weekend it was for fishing just past. It doesn't look as good this coming weekend but hopefully it will change. With northerlies forecast the south coast and harbour should be ok particularly for surfcasting and rockfishing.
The snapper have been a bit harder to catch recently and the deeper spots - 50 to 70mtrs have been more productive. There's still been good action in close but not in the same numbers as the last few weeks. The southerlies havn't helped much as they reduce the water temp and put some fish off the feed.
Kapiti - the 50-60mtr mark has been better for snapper. A few albacore tuna have been but certainly not in big numbers. The hapuku fishing has been pretty good apparently.
West - There's been plenty of gemfish at the 78mtr rise with a few puka too. Fisherman's has been a bit quiet but north of fisherman's has been better fishing. Snapper and trevally have been more consistent down towards Ohau but there is still the odd good catch from Makara up to Mana. Many anglers have reported tough fishing but most have been getting a few snapper mixed in with tarakihi, gurnard, trevally and kingfish. This season there certainly hasn't been as many kahawai around but the ones that are out there are in peak condition prior to spawning. Tarakihi fishing has been pretty good at spots like Verns, Makara fencline and the south end of Kapiti
Harbour - Just south of Ward island (6-8mtrs) has been good for snapper of late with some good trevs and gurnard too. Kingfish out in 15-20 mtrs at Ward have been around as well. The kingis have been a bit harder to catch off the shore in the harbour and many have gone deeper. Point Gordon, the Wreck and Falcon Shoal are generally good for kingis at this time of the year. Point Halswell and Jenningham are great in a southerly for gurnard, tarakihi and a mixture of other species (20mtrs). There have been a lot of smaller kahawai around the harbour this season.
