    I had a couple of short fishing sessions during my week working in Auckland, before getting driven away by very heavy rain, didn’t get anything, just small bites. I went to Orakei wharf and there were lots of guys there trying to catch squid. I went under the harbour bridge and found that the stuck up yacht clubs down there don’t allow fishing in their area, and just outside of the yacht clubs you can’t fish from 9:30pm-6am.

    I forget the exact reason why fishing was banned there, something regarding the safety of the public.

    Still waiting for spring. Soon the doggies would leave and the lemons would return.

    Just been looking at the sea temps on swellmap and cloudy bay appears to be around 15c, Have no idea how they collect the information but assuming the data is correct we might start getting more interesting species soon. Clifford bay is still around 14.3c and it is even colder further south.

    edit: Just read a few reports from this time last year. The first rig was reported early september, then quite a few mullets and the odd KY being caught.

    I believe that on the 1st of September last year we did our kaikoura trip and Booger caught his Salmon.

    with the weather the way it is at the moment looks as if the rivermouths will be a no go for a bit. Its absolutely teeming down in picton right now! The wairau looked too thick to drink and too thin to plough. will this rain never end!!
