My Fishing Calendar Information 2013:
Here's an oldie but a goody in checking whether to go fishing or just stay home and get brownie points for next time.

Hi everyone, my boat is now for sale, chick here for the details. Also I'll be on the Marco Boats Stand at the upcoming Auckland Boat Show at the Expo Centre in Greenland.







Good luck out there regards Bill.




Welcome to my Maori Fishing Calendar. I will post each month with bite times. Just remember this is only a guide, there are many factors that affect the fishing, barametric pressure, water temperature just to name a few. One thing I have noticed though over the years, is the tide factor. It seems to me that fishing is better on an incoming tide when the moon is waning, and fishing is better on the outgoing tide when the moon is waxing. If you can see the moon, the best time it seems to me, is when it is at the 2 o'clock position in the sky. However once you think you have a handle on the fish, the rules change, so keep that in mind at all times and you can't go far wrong. Good means up to 1 hour's good fishing - Fair means up to 30 minutes and Bad gives up to 15 minutes. The times quoted are the daytime hours. However if you wanted to fish at night the times would apply as well albeit fractionally earlier.

Here is a website that gives more info on moon phases you might find interesting:
