Re: 2012 surf catches Spring/summer


Went on a last minute snapper fish, first checked out Mahua Sounds but the wind would have made fishing unpleasant. So decided to back track to a old favorite which was the grove wharf. The small wharf was occupied when I arrived, which was fine with me because the best spot is off the beach a short distance from the wharf 8)

Got there just before low tide, and the fishing was slow (It has never really produced well over low). The highlight was a powerful running fish which broke my braided mainline on its run. Only one type of fish have achieved that before, although there must have been a weak spot in the braid. Might discard the first 50m or so, been using it for a couple of seasons….
