Did a lot of trolling this weekend out from Kaikoura, was after Tuna but did not even see one…. Water was a decent colour and the wind was calm. Heaps of sea perch when bottom fishing, investigated a workup and had a school of massive Kahawai glide just beneath my kayak.
After my trolling I jumped into the water south of Kaikoura and speared a big Butterfish, visibility was good. Saw quite a few others but one was enough.
