Just got back from 2 nights out at titirangi bay.
Friday night got 10 or so snapper and 3 carpet sharks. Got a trevally so cut that up for bait. My mates got a few KY and a snapper or 2. Snapper were all returned. We thought they had to be 35cm so werent keeping them thinking they were undersize. Found out the next day its 25cm.
First time I have been here so was loving the snapper fishing.
Went for a snorkel around the point we were fishing from. Just to check out the botom and see what we could find for bait.
Saturday night turned into a long one. Almost 24 hours on the rocks
Bit of a wind came up but we were probably in the most shelterd spot in the bay. So it wasnt too bad.
The snapper were slow, but there were small sharks everywhere. Nearly every cast resulted in a carpet shark or spinydog. It was good to be constantly catching something but we really wanted the snapper. Got a few small gurnard, blue cod, mullet, and of course bloody spotties!!
Both nights the moon was real bright and you could see sharks, and rays coming up the berley trail. Interesting to watch while waiting for a bite.
Fine weather, good mates, alcohol and good fishing resulted in a bloody good weekend. Now I’m off to catch up on sleep
