Sea­son con­tin­ues to de­liver

Eastern Courier - - OUT & ABOUT -

We’ve had the plea­sure of some re­ally stun­ning weather, some dur­ing the week, but most of it (to the shock and sur­prise of ev­ery­one) last week­end!

With the sea­son heat­ing up sooner than usual, we’ve seen some fan­tas­tic fish weighed in, through com­pe­ti­tions and just fishos get­ting out there to en­joy them­selves. Out wide past the Noises and out into the beau­ti­ful Firth of Thames is where you’ll find the big snap­per and king­fish. Work-ups are still there, they are big, full of snap­per, kingys, ka­hawai and loaded with an­chovies. Al­though out wide has been so abun­dant with fish, so has the shal­lower wa­ter. Places like Mel­lons Bay, Cockle Bay, Parks Point and Home Bay are all full of fan­tas­tic, per­fect size eat­ing fish.

This sea­son has also seen a spike in gurnard num­bers, one of us Ki­wis favourite fish for the din­ner ta­ble. The top baits are an­chovies, mul­let and pilchards.

So, un­til next week... Tight Lines!
