Went just south of Birdlings this evening, didn’t get anything on my baits out in the water but while spinning with a hex lure I picked up a 2 1/2 foot couta. Not big for a couta but was fun to fight on lighter gear.
Went away to the sounds of course between the 27th Dec and the 3rd Jan, got a gurnard, couta, Kaiwhai, mullet, and a few snapper! Got some pics but waiting for them as on anothers camera. Am looking forward to going after kingfish out of Bank’s Peninsula in around a month or so, or whenever they show up I spose.
