Wally’s Fishing Report 7th November

Wally’s Fishing Report 7th November

Kingfish and Snapper


On Wednesday the 6th of November, I got home from work and I was informed by my better half that we were going for a fish the following morning. This was great as I don't need an excuse for a fish so we set of from home at 7.30am the next morning and battled my way through the Drury and Papakura traffic and got to the boat ramp at 9am.  No one else was at the ramp, great.


We headed straight out to the 30m mark towards Coromandel Harbour and deployed the burley.  Plenty of fish around but all were pickers around the 35cm mark stripping the Pillies in no time so I started to concentrate on catching some mackerel.  As soon as we started using these as bait it was a game changer. For us that is the best bait as the smaller fish have trouble with the tougher and larger baits.

We went back to shore at 1pm with a good load of snapper between 4 to 12 pound and a nice fat kingfish.


Nice catch Wally, love the hat!!
