Hi , Just thought I would put something in here to support the BOP area. Don't get out as much as I would like due to work but when I do go,I fish mostly from the Papamoa area and up to about 4 kms from shore. Also fish round Pukehina and Matata but have to pick your days there due to dumper surf at times.

Hey..

I have recently checked out Makatu as a launch spot.. Seems great, can be fairly big swells at pukehina and still easy to launch from makatu. I have a couple of spots off town point and closer in the makatu bay.

Didn't get out today but I think it was just as well as the surf was big and nasty out Pukehina way , and most likely much the same at Papamoa.

Met up with PiwiKiwi at 7am this morning and headed out off Papamoa,Piwi found his reef and bait fish for Terakihi while I drifted for snapper.He ended up with 5 terakihi and 2 snapper and I got 2 snapper 40cm & 41cm and a John dory we got dinner for tonight. Was good to be out on the water.
