FISHING
 
A pretty good week for fish with a couple of big fish weighed last weekend. On Saturday we had a stripey at 112.8kg and on Sunday Tony Croft, fishing on Mad Max, landed a 147kg broadbill. With the water still reported to be quite warm out there and plenty of bait schools, it will not be unexpected for more of these larger fish to be caught in the coming weeks.
There are also some nice fish in close with many snapper around the 4-5kg mark being caught behind Ohinau and on the southern edge of the Mercury Islands. Smaller fish are plentiful in most popular spots in the bay and are still up to about 50cm in many cases. Cooks Beach, the Whau Whau Reef and a mile or so behind Centre Island have all been fishing well when conditions permit.
 
ESPLANADE UPGRADE
 
We are pleased to advise that the latest plan for the road layout does not include provision for a pedestrian refuge (island) right outside our driveway. There will be extended curbing on each side of the road to increase the safety for pedestrians but this is an excellent compromise and will suit the club’s purposes. We appreciate the council’s efforts to take our concerns into account whilst maintaining the benefits of the street upgrade. (Copy of latest plan is on our notice board)
 
DRIVEWAY
 
Please be aware that in order to effect the street upgrade, there will be a small disruption to the use of our driveway nest week. It is likely that next Thursday there will be no access to parking on our premises and you will need to find a park on the street or find alternative ways to get here. There will also be disruption on Monday & Wednesday. The club will remain open every day as usual and the contractor is committed to maintaining access for us as much as possible but you can’t drive over wet concrete.
 
VHF CHANNEL 65
 
Last week we gave an update so members had some understanding of what we are doing with this channel. We don’t really have much more to advise as the engineer is still assembling the repeater ready for installation. In the meantime it is appropriate to show our appreciation to Linda Coates, Life member and radio operator, for her efforts in getting the club to the position where we have control over our own VHF channel. It is almost certain that this would have been a lost opportunity if not for Linda’s effort and perseverance.

FISHING I had a few people get back to me late last weekend about their fishing trips.  Pretty much all positive news, with everyone coming home with some fish.  Mainly targeting snapper and the guys I spoke to had smaller boats so most of the fishing was done around...

FISHINGOnce again I haven’t received much feedback this week which is probably a reflection of how much fishing is going on.  The reports I did get were somewhat conflicting with a couple of crews struggling to get amongst the snapper even though they...

FISHING I haven’t heard a lot from people this week so far. What news I have heard has been pretty positive with plenty of snapper being caught. Out around the Mercury Islands has been popular but I don’t know how they’ve got on closer in around the bay this week....
