It’s the sea­son of fish ga­lore

Eastern Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

There are fish ab­so­lutely ev­ery­where! An­glers are head­ing out wide to hit up those wild work-ups, which are pro­duc­ing killer ka­hawai and su­perb snap­per. It pays to en­sure you have a plan of what depth you want to start your fish­ing ses­sion in.

The Big Fish team has been start­ing their days fish­ing in around 45m, and with the help of those trusty slow jigs have been land­ing snap­per af­ter nice snap­per, the big­gest a choice 65cm!

Check the tides be­fore head­ing out, as they’ve been big, so when it turns you get some rip! Heav­ier weights (and or jigs) will be needed.

The Noises, Rakino and Tir­i­tiri have all been ac­tion-packed. If you want to stay in close, try ar­eas such as Parks Point, Mo­tu­ihe Chan­nel and Sergeants Chan­nel. An­glers have re­ported land­ing fish up to 12lb.

The top baits are mul­let, mack­erel and pilchard. So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
