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 river although the fresh water from the rain in the weekend slowed things a bit.  There are some good size trevally around ad once again, in, or close to the river is the place to pick them up.  There are still plenty of Kingies being caught including in the bay.  A fresh, live mackerel will set you up well for these guys.  As I write this, a vessel called in a stripey that had pulled some string somewhere just south of the Hook.  A favourable weather forecast for the next few days should see some action at the weighstation or a few entries in the Sherriff Drainage, Coastline Excavations tagging club. P.S.  Just before sending this message, another marlin hooked then dropped just south of the Hook and another one tagged and released somewhere around Mayor Island.
 
HOLIDAY SEASON HOURS
 
For the next few weeks, the club will be open at 12.00 noon every day.  The bar and kitchen will both be open so you can enjoy the view from our refurbished clubrooms or our newly furnished deck, while you enjoy lunch and/or a drink.
 
COURTESY VAN
 
As usual, we are looking for volunteers to drive the courtesy van on Thursday evenings for a few hours – some of our regular volunteers are unavailable over the holiday period.  If you are able to help out at all, please contact the office.  For each night you volunteer you are eligible to receive a complimentary meal from the bistro.

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...

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 21st Dec
