Fishing report Tolaga Bay East Cape New Zealand May 2004

Not a lot to report this month as the weather has kept me on shore for most of the time.

We only got one trip out early in the month when we got some good hapuku in deeper water and another trip last weekend with a few hapuku terakihi and snapper closer in. On the second of May we were anchored on a bird watching trip when a school of yellowfin erupted round the boat, good size fish of around 30kg. A great sight to see them leaving the water by at least a metre, saw one catch a bait fish in the air, first time I have ever seen that. Hopefully the weather will settle down and let us get out in the coming weeks. There should be plenty of snapper to be caught soon and hapuku out deeper, there will still be some yellowtail around in places although the bad weather may have chased most of then north and into deep water.
