Well almost. Bit of a shock seeing snow on the hills a couple of weeks back. Did a weekend trip to the bay with the otha fulla. Fishing was tough but the weather was stellar n calm. Lurked around the islands n wainui farm picking up mostly smaller brim.
Asking around revealed the good fish were on the other side of the bay...
Ive been mixing it up lately exploring nearby spots ive passed by n retrying old spots. A semi fresh hole in the seawall in front of motueka produced brim n gurnard on the out going tide. The otha fulla got harrased by the razor gang and eels at kina so the deeper water off stevens n kaiteriteri has been the choice for the last few weeks. Last sat am session was epic with brim n gurnard on most baits n grubtail softies getting hammered. Some large kahawai about, the odd cuda, n carpet sharks starting to turn up...
