Whangarei Offshore Fishing
Fishing seems to be going very well for boat fishers around the Whangarei area.
Warren Hay from Dargaville Marine reports there are plenty of snapper, gurnard and trevally around.
The best areas are close in off Ruakaka and Ocean Beach in particular.
Both spots are producing good fish.
This is great news for the upcoming weekend. Kitefishers could do well in these areas if the westerlies hold out over the weekend.
Don't go to Waipu though, it may need a couple of weeks yet for the last of the weed to clear.
Due to the popularity of kitefishing there are a lot more kites being flown from the beaches. Please be considerate when going fishing on the beach when others already have their gear set.
Leave a good 500m between you and the next kitefisher. This will help prevent any tangles and make your day and theirs a much more pleasant experience.
Kite Fishing Club News
The club is holding a non-fishing, kite-flying day at The Esplanade, Mangere on Sunday May 19th 2002 starting at 11am. This is a particularly good day for those fairly new to kite fishing, as it is an excellent way to pick up some helpful tips.
Even those that have been kitefishing for a long time say there is always something to be learnt from the others in the club.
Club members will be flying their kites, demonstrating how to tack the kites and retrieve them. All good information, and a
fun day for everyone.
