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 probably in lesser numbers than previous months.  Out wide people are picking up really good hapuku and bass and for those towing plastic, a few marlin are starting to show up.  The best results for hook ups of marlin seems to be from inside the Hook and South all the way through the middle ground and outside the Aldermans down towards Mayor Island.  There was a marlin tagged east of Cuvier but not a lot of action from elsewhere up north yet. .
 
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 was held last week and attracted 125 anglers on 40 boats.  There were no big eye or yellow fin caught but our congratulations go to Kelly Hamilton Fishing on Gonzo who took out $3000 cash for first prize with a 13.22kg albacore.  Our thanks and appreciation go to John and Chrissy from Pacific Coast Marine and Diesel for your tremendous support.
 
LADIES TOURNAMENT
 
This one day tournament will be held on Saturday 26 January – Auckland Anniversary weekend. Angler numbers will be limited and it did reach its maximum last year so get your entries in asap to avoid disappointment.  The ladies have done excellent job accumulating prizes including a Holden Spark car so there will be plenty to fish for.  Entry forms on the bar and on our website www.gamebase.co.nz.

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. ...

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...
