Great fish­ing in all di­rec­tions

Eastern Courier - - SPORT -

This week’s fish­ing has been pretty full on!

Al­most ev­ery an­gler go­ing out onto the Hau­raki Gulf has caught their daily limit of fish within the first half an hour of do­ing so, which is a pretty amaz­ing feat.

Snap­per are in abun­dance in the Parks Point and Sergeants Chan­nel ar­eas.

When it comes to land­ing them, bait is first on the menu, but those soft baits are a close sec­ond.

Out in the Firth of Thames has also started to fire up, with the 40-me­tre mark pro­duc­ing a few 20-pounders and some very nice king­fish.

Happy about the har­vest, Half Moon Bay res­i­dent Leonie Wal­lace says: ‘‘This is the big­gest fish I’ve caught, on our first out­ing in the new boat.’’

Over the next week we should see even more bril­liant catches as our weather is clear­ing up and calm­ing down.

It’s time to get back out there on the briny and start fish­ing again! The top baits are pilchard, mul­let and squid.

So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
