Work-ups as far as eye can see

Eastern Courier - - OUT & ABOUT -

Al­though the weather hasn’t been the best, in those moments of beau­ti­ful calm the fish­ing has been crazy ex­cit­ing! Big workups are still to be found as far as the eye can see.

The big­gest snap­per are out wider around 35-55 me­tres. Tir­i­tiri Matangi is hold­ing plenty of fish, so this is where to start your fish­ing ad­ven­ture. For the peo­ple us­ing slow jigs and soft baits, with the massive choice in colours and sizes, there’s al­ways one for what­ever species you’re tar­get­ing. Ask the staff at The Big Fish about which one you should try.

Lots of fishos are catch­ing fan­tas­tic snap­per and ka­hawai out of the Wai­heke and Coro­man­del mus­sel farms. These are no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult to pull fish from, so make sure you have some strong line on that reel! Also check out Rakino Is­land, Home Bay, Izzy Bay, the Noises and Hooks Bay. The top baits are mul­let, squid and pilchard. So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
