Sunny weather ahead for fishos

Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Not much in the way of fish­ing this past week, as that massive weather bomb that hit Auck­land re­ally re­stricted us fishos from do­ing what we do best!

But have no fear, as these next few weeks prom­ise a vast im­prove­ment in weather, which means we can all get back out there and start hav­ing fun!

The best re­ports of big snap­per are com­ing from the bot­tom end of Wai­heke Is­land, with places such as Kauri Point and Paka­toa Is­land be­ing the key ar­eas to start look­ing for a feed.

King­fish are still in large num­bers all over the place, and soft baits and slow jigs are go­ing to be key to land­ing ei­ther kingys or snap­per over the next week or so.

As our wa­ters have been so stirred up by the storm, a high-vis bait is go­ing to make all the dif­fer­ence.

It’s time to gear up ev­ery­one, fish­ing is of­fi­cially back on!

The top baits are mul­let, pilchard and mack­erel.

So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
