3 Kahawai

by | 680 views

We went fishing on Saturday at around 12pm just to see if the Snapper might have come in at Paraparaumu Beach. Having not done any fishing over Winter we were a bit rusty. We got our little Zodiac out and scrubbed it off. We headed out at Paraparaumu Beach and had a quick fish as high tide was approaching (high tide was at 2pm’ish). We tested our usual spot off the boat club at around 20m of water. We didn’t however have a fish finder as on our last fishing trip last summer it decided to finally fill with water and die on us – we weren’t expecting much from it as it was just a cheap hand held one, we won off Trade Me. Very soon however we are going to get a really good portable fish finder – as this is an essential piece of equipment needed to target different fish. It really was just a guessing game and we really didn’t catch a lot except for 3 Kahawai and 3 or 4 blind eels. It was nice however to finally get out on the boat again and enjoy the good weather. Perhaps this summer we will finally get out a bit further and give Kapiti Island a test – It’s just a bit risky with the small boat we have. I’m sure there is Snapper being caught at the moment however I don’t know if they are in the shallower waters just yet.
