GETTING YOU TO THE BIG FISH……FASTER

Our purpose built Extreme vessels are powered by Honda for quietness, fuel economy, reliability and performance. We know you would prefer to be fishing rather than travelling, so we use our speed to get you to the action and our Furuno sounders to track down the fish.

USE THE BEST GEAR

Wave Dancer use Catch Fishing tackle because it’s tough, innovative, and amazing at catching fish. You’ll be using lures like the Freestyle Kabura, Betabug, Squid Wings, Long John Slider, The Boss to name a few, and experiencing the Catch Pro Series rods and reels.

WIN A TRIP ON WAVE DANCER…EVERY WEEK.

Every week one lucky person will win a trip on Wave Dancer. You could be catching the snapper of a lifetime, or experiencing the thrill of a workup as hundreds of gannets dive bomb into a school of frenzied baitfish that are fleeing from a pod of hungry dolphins.

Snapper are back on the bite!

Catch Fishing
WTF - 13 December 2017

Yes – snapper are back on the bite big time!

What a difference a day (or two) can make. Following on from the Super-moon softening of general fishing activity last week, snapper are again feeding well for long periods of the day. The main Hauraki Gulf activity moved a little further out against the more general inwards flow of fish. The action has been found more into the mid-ground area of 45m over the last few days. This follows some intense feeding in the inner 30m-35m zone. Increased bird activity on the surface has spread over much of the middle gulf. The birds above hold some excellent fishing down below with the food chain rattling loud and clear.

Catching the attention of the bigger snapper by using bigger offerings has been working well. Consistent 10lb+ snapper have readily attacked the bigger 100gm to 200gm lures. Lures are hit hard and aggressively on the drop. Using the big guns when the bite is good virtually eliminates catching the smaller thirty-something-centimetre snapper.

Inner channels of the Waitemata are already starting to provide some action. An early season start for sure, and there are a lot more snapper on their way in!

A number of sharks are making their presence known in terms of sudden slack-lines or half a fish being boated out in the gulf. It’s a thrill when you hook them – enjoy the ride, it may be brief.

When the going is good, it’s time to get going!

Enjoy,
Espresso.

This week's WTF with Espresso... The fishing is hotting up!

Catch Fishing
WTF - 16 November 2017

Memories that haven’t been made, that’s what awaits us all and to some degree we can even choose our future fishing memories, it is time.

Time for either some inshore fishing, maybe not Downtown Auckland quite yet though. But certainly many of the shallower waters around the gulf have started to heat up. Both in terms of water temp and snapper numbers.

Kingfish have been right up against hard against the rocks hounding the fleeing baitfish. A handful of gannets hovering right on a shoreline are relatively easy to spot and a real giveaway to potential top water heaven. These have been spotted along the eastern shoreline of southern Kawau earlier this week. Even western Rangitoto, where this weeks Where's The Fish is filmed. It's thrilling stuff.

Out wider towards Coromandel there has been some down time. Perhaps due to the cooler water there at the moment. However this should bring about some radical change shortly in terms of fish feeding. Nor-west of the Moehau range out towards Anchorite is on the near future fishing radar.

Avoid the No Fishing Zone and associated fines etc (it contains the international fibre optic cables we all rely on). North of Tiritiri to Flat Rock and further has provided great action fishing for the workup minded. While the direction of the workups seems to be eastward, I suspect the general Flat Rock area to continue to provide good fishing for a while. The nature of the workups especially just north of Flat Rock has meant good attendance from kingfish. There's some sizeable specimens in great condition too taking both top water lures and especially fast-retrieved jigs.

Enjoy!
