Hi Guys

Just a reminder for the next club event planned for Orere Point - 26 November 2016.  

As far as a plan goes, I was thinking being on the water around 7am which should hopefully work in well with high tide around 6am.  Will use channel 8 on the VHF.  If anyone is keen we could stop for a beer on the way back through Kaiaua, or gather back at the beach after fishing, will see what the weather is doing and who is keen. I will update with weather next week.

Cheers
Jason

Just south side of Orere point around the corner, there has been a massive slip come down, its part of the horse stud and its a mess in there, not sure if its had anything to do with the fishing but its been very poor in that area.... I spent three hours in there last week, not even a bite, nothing at all, headed way out over the sand and picked up some nice gurnard , the snapper are pretty average TBH...
Will be in Fiji otherwise would have been keen to come out...
Cheers AW

Thanks for the heads up AW, that doesn't sound good at all!

Waikato Kayak Fishing Club - guys - let me know what you think, AW knows this area really well so I'm inclined to take on his advice. Options are we keep with Orere as fishing could change between now and the 26th, or try another spot - maybe Kaiaua which is close to Orere but has the mussell farms, or the other side - Wilsons Bay?

Let me know your preference and we will go with what is preferred.

Cheers

Was in there last week (Thursday), as said fishing was below average, and stopped completely at about 10am.

Always regret putting those mid 30's back in the expectation of something bigger ;)

Nice day out on the water though.

Think i'd be tempted to drive that little bit further and do east/west Coro, but happy to get the paddle wet anywhere at this stage and expect the urge to grow even more with the poor wind conditions this week.

I will be keen to join up with you guys, whoever is heading out, I am still fairly new to kayak fishing and would love to the chance to learn a few things and take home a nice feed :) Flounder/Craig was telling me the club had a day trip planned next Saturday when I was talking to him in the weekend as he was giving me some tips.

Hey, guys, lets go with Wilsons Bay. A little bit further to fish Coro would also be good but I don't want to put anyone off the club outing if they would rather have a closer to home event.

High tide is 5.41am, low tide 11.46am.

Will see what the weather does this week, I think I will aim to leave Hamilton around 5am which will get me on the water around 7am - will use channel 8 if anyone arrives earlier or later.

I'll update post end of the week with weather/tsunami outlook!

I plan to be there also, once I find out where Wilsons Bay is :) I'll be leaving from Te Awamutu.

I just bought a new rod/reel today and finally got myself a VHF.

Hi Enmei. Hopefully you have location sorted? You can google Wilsons Bay Thames and it will give you the location, its jusy before the road starts heading up the hill over to Te Kouma. As per photo below, there is a track down to the water and at high tide it will be an easy launch and current will drift you northwards. Parking is on the side of the road. Coming back in at low tide will be a bit more tricky with rocks but manageable, or if you come in with someone else you can help each other. More than happy if you want to buddy up with me or if you see any of the other guys when you get there they will be more than happy to pair up which would be good if your relatively new to the sport, or call us up on channel 8. I am driving a black Honda CRV towing a boxed kayak trailer. Ph 027 687 8802.

At this stage weather is looking okay but will update later in the week.

Any question just let us know.

Cheers
Jason

Nah, park roadside, though if there are few going it maybe a little tight.

Apart from a possible shower, forecast looking good. 5-6 knots first thing building to possible 12 knots late morning and a bit more breezy in the afternoon, so morning fish is the go.

From those I have heard there will be 5 of us, Fishless, Waikatoguy, Enmei, myself and Phil, see you guys there.

Cheers
Jason

Flounder is also coming along, he's only 5 minutes from me and hes offered to take myself and my kayak in his vehicle. I'm going through my stuff wondering if there is anything else I need. :)
