Old Man Of The Sea” Trophy Nominations

Each Year at our AGM in August we award the “Man of the Sea” Trophy, We are currently looking for nominations for this award,

This goes to some-one who has overcome a huge fight to land a fish. This could be a ‘fish of the life time’, eg a Club, NZ or World record. It could be a Marlin or Bluefin taking several hours to boat or tag – where it was touch and go whether the angler or fish tired first. Or a rod breaking with the angler landing the fish by hand. The Nominations will be considered by the Committee and the Winner will be announced at the August 2017 AGM & Prizegiving, For a nomination form email me at newsletter@waikatosportfishing.co.nz or give our club President Roger a call on 027 490 2771

Fishing Reports

Raglan Report:

The west coast is still fishing well, Might have to take a swandri and beanie to keep warm but once the fog lifts and you’ve lost the feeling in your toes its time to hook into some good numbers of snapper, Plenty of kahawai schools around at the moment so if you pick up a few of them first the snapper can resist a fresh slap of them, Even though the fish are being caught in 57m there are good fish at your feet before heading out wide, 8-20meters is fishing hot with good gurnard making an appearance also. Black Rock is fishing well with Club member Graham Hurbert sending in these photos from two different trips, Crew member Renee Doig caught this 8.32kg beauty snapper in 10m at blackrock, she also topped the day off with a 12lb & 14lb snapper. renee snapper april 2017 003

On another trip crew member Matt Shaw got this impressive snapper back at black rock, Thanks for the report and photos Graham, Looks like the Vessel Barbara Dawn has been doing a great job getting to the fish.Matt Shaws Snapper and Buttons and Bow March 2016 010

Firth/Coromandel Report:

Kingfish great to target this time of year, grab yourself a few rapala’s and tow them around the coro islands and structure, This did the damage on a few kingfish weighed in our Fish City Big Four Comp, They are present in the farms but hard to entice a bite, even turning their nose to some nicely presented live baits. The farms are producing good numbers of snapper once you find them, This time of year if your not onto them in 20mins its worth unhooking from he mussel float and trying a different spot in the farms,  Natural colored softbait’s are working well with the crazy-leg style baits with lots of movement working belt, If you are the traditional bait angler then squid or mullet seem to be bringing in the bigger fish but bonito working well if you just want to grab your 7 pannie snapper, East coast of coromandel has been fishing well around 30mtr on the drift.

Waihi / Tauranga Report:

If you find a gap in the weather and have the boat to do the distance then plate island is the place to head, Kingfish are hot on the bite taking jigs and stickbaits, Try for some fresh bait and a big strayline rig with burley are bringing the Kelpy snapper out for a feed. Gurnard are heating up along Matakana Island, Which would be my first pick for a date with the hot pan and some butter. The harbour has been a touch quiet but always worth dragging the net for a feed of flounder or mullet.

.

Recipe Of The Month

Since the Albacore have turned up I thought this Sashimi Recipe would be appropriate,

Trevally works great also. bleeding your fish when caught is a must

  1. Thinly sliced your boneless freshfish fillets, Coat/roll these slices in sesame seeds,
  2. In a dipping bowl add soy sauce, The juice from one lime, teaspoon of sesame oil, mix together, Can also add honey to sweeten up if preferred
  3. Serve fresh with a side of pickled ginger and Wasabi for the brave.

 

 

Waikawau Ramp Status

Recent heavy rain down pours have damaged the Waikawau boat ramp which gives access into the firth of Thames.

Dredging has commenced this week, but is not yet complete.  If you are looking at going out for a fish in the coming weeks please allow at least a couple of hours either side of low tide to ensure you get in and out, but preferably wait until the dredging is complete. There are still many rocks / banks in the main channel path. Take care to prevent Boat / Outboard damage.
