Been trying my luck at Waihi Beach and Bowentown over the past few days without any luck. The only thing I hooked into was a Stingray.
I tried a few spots in the Bowentown Harbour from a boat. Then I tried a few spots along the Waihi Beach side with the drone at around 400m offshore. Didn't even get a nibble. The baits came back untouched. I tried a whole range of different baits. Wonder where the fish are, they must still be hanging around further offshore in deeper water. I talked to some other local fishos in this area and they didn't seem to be getting much either.
