Increase in temperature over the past week

We’ve seen an increase in temperature over the past week, the days are looking more settled in general which is nice. Didn’t manage to get out last weekend due to the tail end of some bad weather, but the signs are shaping up for a good summer.

The fish we have been catching have been in nice fat condition, but the bite times still seem to be dependent on the current, usual story, but some nice sized schools of bait fish starting to show up which is a good sign.

We’ve heard from a few of the locals that there’s  a bit more fish activity some of the beach fishermen and down towards Maketu are seeing tarakihi and snapper in the shallower water so we’ll be checking that out, as well as doing some of the deeper spots we have been doing ok at.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
