FISHING
 
There hasn’t been much change since last week. Snapper fishing is still hot and cold with some anglers faring well and others coming home empty handed.  The best spots still seem to be over the sand/mud around the Puddle or around the river and river mouth.  There have been some good results from some of the many boats fishing out behind Centre Island but a few people have missed out there too.  There are plenty of kahawai in the bay and some kingies lurking around the mackies.  As expected the scallops are taking a bit of a hit but there are still plenty there and they are in extremely good condition.
 
SAD NEWS
 
On a sad note, we must advise that Chris Woodcock passed away a couple of days ago.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
 
CONGRATULATIONS
 
Brook Evans, fishing on IC Red, who caught a 11.01kg kingfish on 6kg line in around Ground Prep.  A pending pin fish.
 
LUNCH
 
The club opening at 12.00 for lunch has been a hit with some very busy days in the last week or so.  It’s a perfect spot to enjoy lunch and/or a drink in the afternoon and we will be opening at 12.00 until January 20th.
 
PACIFIC COAST MARINE TOP TEN TUNA TOURNAMENT
 
This tournament is on this weekend with a very reasonable weather forecast.  $50 entry per angler and $8800 in cash will be given out as prizes for the heaviest ten tuna regardless of species.  Please get your entries to the office as soon as possible then you can register after 11.00 on Friday.
 
LADIES TOURNAMENT
 
This tournament will be held on January 26th and numbers will be capped.  Once again the organisers have arranged for a car to be given away at prizegiving and this popular tournament is likely to be sold out as it was last year.  Don’t miss out, get your entry in a.s.a.p.

BUSY NIGHT
 
Thanks to all those members for tolerating an extremely busy night at the club.  Just for the record bar sales were 50% higher than our previous busiest night and the kitchen had their highest sales in 1 night by quite a margin.  Thank you to the volunteers that helped.

FISHING I’ve had a few much better reports this week with people seemingly finding it easier to catch snapper.  Popular spots include the Puddle, the northern edge of the Mercury Islands, outside Centre Island and the river mouth.  There are a few kahawai around but...

FF 28 Dec

FISHING Not a lot of good news on the snapper front – there seems to be plenty out there but it’s hard to get a bite.  A change of tide will sometimes spur them on and make sure your bait is well off the bottom.  Conversely, some nice pannies are being caught in the...

FF 21st Dec

FISHINGGenerally speaking, snapper fishing is not easy and is even harder on rocks or reef. The only two places where I have heard of people catching snapper in any quantity is in the Puddle or in and around the river. There is also a fair bit of by catch in these...
