Conditions on the improve
Last weekend really shone, with five-knot variable winds on Saturday morning leading to every man and his dog hitting the water to make the most of it.
Most of us fishos headed out wide, with the majority of big snapper landed in the Firth of Thames. Slow jigs and soft baits seemed to be the favoured tactic to landing these wicked fish, but plenty of people still had a trusty berley to bring those big snapper and kingfish into the strike zone!
Spots close in like Motuihe Island, Sergeants Channel and Parks Point have all been holding nice sized snapper and of course plenty of kahawai for the dinner table. With lots of new and exciting fishing gear on the market, it’s time to go and talk to the lovely (and fishing mad) staff at The Big Fish Bait and Tackle Co, to see what you need for your tackle box!
The best baits are pilchards, mackerel and use plenty of berley.
So, until next week... Tight Lines!
