Gidday '308' how are you. I have been away for a week, so havnt caught a fish for awhile but they say it has slowed down since all the fresh water hit the Firth.
You don't have to come all the way up to Coromandel Town for a fish. Waikawau and Kerata are the two ramps we use the most and where the majority of our fish come from.
Been doing well Scribe, That is exactly where I would be launching scribe if I were to head over to Thames i can only use concrete ramps as I only have a VW golf station wagon these days, only way I would come all the way to Coromandel town is if you were going to put the billy on
I am in the process of planning a trip from kawakawa bay over to ponui island for a fish at scully reef and possibly around Rotoroa island to fish near some of my old landbased spots that I used to frequent when I did my stint on Rotoroa 23 years ago.
My boat is a 3.95 meter fish city branded boat with a 30hp mercury tiller steer it is nice and stable even in some of the rough stuff I have wound up in on the inside of kawhia harbour, she's all set up with fish finder and chart plotter as well as VHF radio and required safety gear
A nice snapper my other half caught while we were out on our first trip on kawhia harbour and is her first one over 30cm
