Best winter to date in years
19 July 2017

This has definitely been the best winter to date in years. The  blows have been full on when they’ve hit, but in between we’ve had good settled weather and calm conditions, a welcome change from the last decade or so.

The fishing’s reflected  it, generally not much current and good catches. Though there was more current  last week, consequently we spent more time shifting and resetting to get onto them.. The overall catches were good though, with   the odd legal kingfish along with the usual mix.

The deep water drifts for hapuku, bass and the like  have been  a different story. Maybe next  season, but at present we’re not too keen on chasing them. Too much work for too little result.
