June.. I haven’t been out much this month but one fine afternoon we ventured to Aropaonui just north of Napier for an afternoon fish.
We weren’t expecting to catch much more than perhaps a Kahawai but we were surprised by the catch of the couple of nice Gurnard.
I also dragged out a large conger that felt for all the world like a big snapper on the line, but my grin was wiped when I saw what it actually was in the waves. The Conger was released.
The Kahawai are back in large numbers this month, especially near the river mouths. A few red cod and baracouta are showing up as well.
Pania Surfcasting Club had their ‘Brass Monkey” one day comp this month –read about it here.
