|Saturday 14th April - Bay Kayak Fishing Comp|
Saturday 14th April.
So it was a bit of an early one this morning but as it turned out it was definitely worth it. Today we had a kayak fishing competition here in Tauranga and I was invited to team up with friends Mark, Paul, and Ash. With a forecast that promised a bit of wind in the morning, we decided it best to head down to Waihi Beach and hide under the cliffs. None of us had actually fished there before but it was a good excuse to go and check it out so we headed off before 5am to get on station before the sun came up.

I decided to employ my usual tactics and head out over the sand looking for some sign. I came across this less than 1km off shore in about 12-13m of water. Over the next couple of hours the fishing in this area just went ballistic. It started off with only a single fish here and there but this rapidly built to the point where every single drop was catching us something. I was running both a softbait rod and a normal bait rod and it was getting a bit difficult to handle as I often had 2 fish hooked up at the same time. The best occasion was when I managed to land a respectable 3.1kg snapper only to have my bait rod catch a 3kg fish while I was still dealing with the first...my gaff has never had to be used twice in a row like that before.
By around midday we all pretty much had our limits the wind had dropped off completely so it was a pretty magical day. I had only caught 5 of the 9 snapper that I was legally allowed but they were all so big that my fish bin was getting to full. With several Kahawai thrown in as well I noticed that the kayak was definitely moving a lot slower than usual...never a bad thing haha. For the next couple of hours we spread out to catch other species but with full kayaks our hearts weren’t quite in it anymore so we called it a day at around 2.30 all feeling pretty buggered, sunburnt, and happy. We weighed some of our bigger fish for the competition but were well out classed in most sections, but Paul still managed second for his big Kahawai so that was pretty sweet.
A massive thanks to the boys for inviting me out for the day and I’m looking forward to the next big mission.
Paddle hard everyone. Tim.
