Yep, so winter is over, the All Blacks have won their first pool match, its officially Spring, the whitebait season is underway, sea temps are rising ,slowly , but it is happening as it does every year.
So what state is your yak in? Could you throw it in the water tomorrow? Sweet, if the answer is yes, but for many of us it's time to crack into the new season. Lets have some posts and some enthusiasm for the new season.

I threw my yak into the water at the port yesterday at 7am. Headed out to the red bouy behind 2 other yaks that were anchored further out. No luck for the first hour, then hooked and landed a great ky. Other yaks then came in as they were only catching sharks! They moved on to green bouy. Fishing then got going with another 3 good ky and 2 good gurnard. No sharks were caught. Water temp was just on 13. Headed back in at nine with plenty of fish. Conditions were great. Two more yaks were heading out when I came in. :y: :y:

The bay is overflowing with Gurnard at the moment, (one on the right was 1.2kg)
These ones from a trip out from tangoio. have been catching them all winter. Water temp of 15 degrees yesterday. and best part 0 spinies, the sun has kicked them out.

I've also had multiple Tarakihi and Blue Cod , so a very very good winter season for me. Snapper actually are here already so I am going to be hitting my spots with the straylining gear within the next week or two.
