August in Hawke’s Bay

Baracuda on light gear can be fun. But they will wreck your traces.

The sea is getting cleaner, the redcod are less frequent. My last few outings have produced an odd mixture of Conger eels, Kahawai, Redcod, Paddle crabs and Baracuda. The one nice exception being a good sized Gurnard.
But the weather is better, which makes catching this mixture of rubbish bearable. Catching up with a few mates on the beach is the highlight of the outing when the fishing is slow. Hey its better than sitting on the couch. 🙂

Looking forward to September and the chance of a Snapper.
