I am led to believe some fisho’s do well on the kingi’s in pegasus bay, as you say gunnercoops…. working the floating debris/kelp,
and reading somewhere recently of a bloke who lays out a tarpaulin with buoys tied to the corners….. apparently the kingi’s are attracted under this,
Whakamoa reef (Banks Peninsula) is also known for kingi’s over summer….. although I think the preferred method is livebaiting under a balloon,
….hoping to spend some days on the water in and around Taylors over summer myself yakkaman>>>>> to fire rapala’s at “kingi’s”… close to home.
