That’s a friggin nice tope there HLS! Can you point me to a post saying what rig and bait you get these things on? Or if you could tell me that would be sweet! I will bestow all my moki knowledge that I can in exchange. All up I got 10 on Thursday and Friday, 4 nice sized ones. (to me they seemed nice sized!) Although I believe they get a fair bit bigger.
Yep, can confirm what TFG said. The butterfish were caught on light rig consisting of 2 or perhaps even 4 hooks just like you would do for mullet. And small bits of mussel on each hook (just the lip part). There were a group of kids there who tried limpit for bait on small hooks and dam they got a nice butterfish, so that would be worth a shot to.
