FISHING

Snapper fishing is still pretty hard work.  The best area seems to be around the Puddle in 30 to 40 metres.  Ledger rigs and small baits might also increase your chances but you need to find the fish first so you’ll need a sounder.  They’re also catching snapper in the river and the river mouth.  There are quite a few kingies being caught but it is imperative you stock up on a few liveys before targeting these blokes.  There’s a bit of action in the outer part of the bay with bait schools on the surface and larger fish under them.  We’re starting to get a few unconfirmed reports of sightings or encounters with marlin and an excellent weather forecast for the next few days will have the weighmaster very near his/her phone.

 SPONSORS GRID

The grid was drawn on Saturday night and we have a large one on display in the clubrooms so people can see the different configuration and who drew what area.  Congratulations to the sponsors that drew the areas they were looking for and a big thanks from the members – we appreciate your support.  We should have copies available for everyone in the next week or so.

TRAILER BOAT TOURNAMENT RAFFLE

Tickets are on sale in the clubrooms for the Shimano Tiagra rod and reel combo – Shimano Tiagra Ultra Nano 3050 24kg stand up rod and Shimano Tiagra 50W reel.

TOURNAMENT ENTRIES

Tournament rules and entry forms are now available of our website ( www.gamebase.co.nz) and over the next few days there’ll be copies on the bar.  A couple of the tournaments have limited entries so be careful you don’t miss out.  Ladies Tournament limited to 350 anglers and the Billfish Classic is limited to 45 teams.

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...
