Tauranga Fishing Report 10th November

Rolys Report for Hauraki FM, Newstalk, Radio Talk Back, 

The November equinox winds have kicked in this week and as they pulse through the Bay of Plenty it can make getting out on the water a bit tough, so the next few weeks will be about grabbing those fine settled days to make the most of the spring fishing.

Snapper fishing overall remains pretty good on the coast, in the past week Matakana Island, Papamoa and inside of 15m at Motiti Island all reporting good snapper sessions. The weed edges in particular have been performing well so a tip here would be to set up your berley trail running into or along a reef edge. You will want to see plenty of current, and from here start straylining.  Pillies and bonito strips have been great baits, if the fish are not solidly on the bite maybe tie your baits on if they are getting stolen.

Coming up at the Club is the Decoro SNAPPER KINGFISH Tournament on the 19/20th November in conjuction with Rockgas Tauranga & NZ Bayfisher Magazine. Also on is a seminar from the Decoro lads along with fathom lures – get down and have a go on the fish fighting simulator too Thurs 17th Nov. Kicking off at 6.30pm.
