Its mid November and theoretically summer time. Not that you’d notice..
We’ve had nice sunny days and clean water. We’ve also had 3 meter swells and and howling easterlies.
Surfcasters have been targetting big Snapper as is the norm at this time of year.
And all that effort has paid off for a few lucky fishermen here in Hawkes Bay.
Most of the ‘biggies; have been caught in northern HB, from Mohaka to East Cape, but the biggest I’ve heard of was caught right here on a local Napier beach. Twelve point nine kilos is a monster Snapper in anyone’s books.
Myself, I’ve not managed to catch any, but then I’m probably in the majority saying that. Fish of 10kg plus are really once in a lifetime fish for most surfcasters.
There are reports of Moki being caught locally as well as further south.
