Eleven members of the Rotorua Anglers Association took part in this trip which is designed to introduce members to winter shoreline night fishing.
The evening started at 4.00 pm with a BBQ at the pipe and then anglers spread themselves along the Hinehopu shoreline. The weather was fine with a light SE wind – perfect.
Some anglers fished through the change of light while other hardy souls (read this as mad) fished till nearly midnight. The fishing was hard which may be due to the continued warm weather which has probably delayed the winter spawning.
In spite if this four fish were landed and 3-4 lost.
Hopefully there will be more fish to catch next year.
Thanks Neil for a great night out.
