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.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
