Storms pounding along the Whangarei and Tutukaka coast has stirred up plenty of feed producing great inshore fishing for boaties.
This bought the snapper into feast mode, and as the seas subsided, keen rock fishers were experiencing good catches of big snapper. Big baits lobbed into the wash hooked up some very good fish, although many anglers experienced bust-offs.
The boaties weren’t left out, but had to wait a little longer for the seas to settle down. With a good berley trail and big stray-lined baits deployed, many anglers experienced awesome big snapper fishing.
The storms also stirred up the Hen and Chicks, and those with bigger boats benefitted from being able to get there. Once again the snapper fishing was very good; the northern side of the Chicks is fishing well in depths of 45-70m.
Great fishing available near Pacific Rendezvous.
