En­joy­ing ideal con­di­tions

Eastern Courier - - LOCALJOBS -

Fish­ing this past week has still been amaz­ing. Even though the wind was up dur­ing the week­end, snap­per, ka­hawai and king­fish have been caught across the Hau­raki Gulf and Ta­maki Strait.

A cou­ple of lo­cals also caught de­cent sized ka­hawai and snap­per at Buck­lands Beach.

Top places this week are Parks Point, Cru­soe Rock, Brown’s Is­land and Mo­tu­ihe Chan­nel. Reel­ing in up to 12lb snap­per and very close in also means you don’t have to travel too far.

Big con­grat­u­la­tions to a cou­ple of our club mem­bers who have landed their very first striped mar­lin, one weigh­ing 96kg and the other just un­der 70kg.

Mahimahi have also been caught off the west coast. They’ve been quite scarce in re­cent times, but the num­bers are plen­ti­ful again.

The top baits are mack­erel and pilchards. Un­til next week... Tight Lines!
