    Good luck to all who are entering the comp tomorrow. Should be a great day at the river and with plenty of metal hitting the water hopefully plenty of fish weighed in.

    I too would like to wish Good Luck and Tight Lines to everybody for tomorrow. Would of loved to be there but have to work after having the week off. Water was running a lot clearer today so should be a real cracker tomorrow ! As a newcomer to this fabulous sport I would like to take this opportunity to say a Big THANK YOU to all the friendly and very helpfully people (even the grumpy one’s lol) I have met on the river these past few weeks. Started the week getting a bag limit (11 & 14lb) a 15lb today (and I dropped one too) to finish the week. Been a fantastic week and all your advise and knowledge has been well received and very much appreciated ! Cheers Guys

    Had a great day on the Waimak today for the comp. Met the boys at 4.40am at the ramp and got the boat in the drink early. There were only four others out so we still got a good park and killed the time by cooking bacon and egg sammies on the bbq before the sun came up. It was pretty slow to fire but at about 10.30 I hooked and landed a nice 12lb fish just as the F&G rangers were about to check our licences. With that on board we were pretty confident of getting a couple more but unfortunately that was our lot for the day. Still, its been a good couple of weekends with 3 fish between 3 of us so we’re all stoked !

    Should be rain in the headwaters from tonight- finally. Will be interesting to see what it does to the rivers. Noticeable lack of reports from upriver on the waimak- I’ve been out a couple of times in the last week or so, seen nothing. I guess they have to go upriver sometime but has been tough conditions with the river at 30 cumecs, clear & warm.

    Not too sure on total numbers but I think 9 or so were weighed at Mackies. From what I heard there were better numbers at the mouth.

    Heard there was a 21lber caught at the mouth before 11 am. 3 caught on the south side and maybe 8 on the north side. Saw a nice fish landed on the north side with about 15 mins to go. Couple caught down the Banana hole this morning. Heaps of Kahawai, roughly 120 fishermen on the north side, enjoyed being on the south side. Thought the seal was going to chomp one chaps fish, but he managed to haul it in before it could get to it.
