The bay has made it very tough to get out offshore for fishing late winter into spring this year! but i've had a few trips out, even if that is sitting in ahuriri harbour sounder testing ,hiding from the howling westerly and catching baitfish. Hopefully these N Westerlies calm down and we can have a chance!

The wind wasn't to bad out there this morning but you definitely have to pick your days to get out at the moment

I caught 2 fairly large spineys today but I wasn't out for long, once I caught the Kahawai I wanted for the smoker I was off home.
