Tauranga Fishing Report 4th Nov 2016

(On Hauraki FM, ZM, Radio Talk Back and Radio Sport)

A fresh push of snapper looks to have improved fishing in the harbour with these fish moving right up in the mangroves and shallows past Omokoroa. Snapper can often rush into the habour to taking advantage of a crustacean hatch or explosion of another food source becoming available, and it’s not uncommon to see where snapper have been digging right into knee deep water.

Reports over the past week from the small harbour boats suggest some great after work sessions (with the longer days) although these guys are always a bit cagey on detail, though I do know the use lots of berley, and best baits are blue mackerel and pilchard.

Offshore the kingies that have been a bit patchy around Mayor however should get more consistent as we move into November and there are often some big ones around, so make sure you are using good gear. The west side and south sides producing best. Don’t forget to throw in your topwater gear as bust up’s can start to happen from now through summer as Kingies chase congregating jack mackerel.

Coming up at the Club – On Thursday 10th November our Salt Kitchen with Mills Reef Winery are serving up their 7 course Wine and Food challenge. Outstanding food & wine, tickets are limited and just $75.
