The weather along our stretch of coastline has been a bit hit and miss but the fishing has been great.
Last month we didn’t manage many offshore trips due to the weather, but on the few occasions we did venture out the fishing was great and we were well rewarded. A good run of snapper kept us busy, as did quality pearl perch, big Moses perch and lot of tuskfish. We’ve also experience plenty of surface action with some big mahi mahi, and spotted and spanish mackerel caught, making for great offshore action.
It has been a really good season for mangrove jack thanks in large part to the hot weather we have been having. Mangrove jack love hot weather, and while the hot conditions have made it uncomfortable for anglers the fish have revelled in it with plenty of fish caught in the creeks throughout the area.
A few golden trevally have been caught at Inskip Point on live bait, while whiting have been caught in good numbers around Kauri Creek. March last year was on fire with very good reef fishing, plenty of mackerel, and quality weather rewarding anglers. Let's hope 2015 is as kind on all fronts.Reads: 541
