Boat went back in the water yesterday after antifoul and stern gland repacked so haven't been fishing myself for a while but word is around the marina that its hard fishing right now but a few big snapper are turning up for patient people willing to invest in time and burley.

Its kelpie time, adjust your fishing to suit.

Bite times will be short, but fish still have to eat

Noises, Aha's, Gannet Pin, Horn Rock, Little Barrier.

Or closer to land, Ti Point foul, Leigh Reef, East Coast Bays foul, Wellington Reef etc will all hold periodically.

Burley the crap out of them
  

Full tit. Nothing else.

Hmmm..Burley, Bronzies and plastic Sit-On-Top ...too much excitment, FYM  Grin
  Most of my fishing now ( 99%) is drifting and Soft Plastics or trolled lures..burley for me is wasted.

Just finished cuttin fish.  Not quite Hauraki Gulf area but me mate and i had a good evening at Pakiri.  13 snaps most of them 4 to 8 lb
and no bloody cooters!  There were a few fish showing on the sounder so we didn't put any burley out, seemed to solve the cooter problems I have been having lately

Got this nice snapper today, 5.5Kg gutted, strange shape, Massive head short but very fat body.

In the Tiri channel too so right in the comp area.

I gave Savage exact coordinates in case I don't make the comp.

That photo doesn't give an accurate impression of the shape of the fish - It was a 10lbr's body attached to a 20lbr's head. Odd looking thing that's for sure!

I'll expect to be seeing some bigger fish weighed in at this years comp with the change of dates/time of year.  Cool
  

and get what you've always got.
