Re: non surf catches


Went over to Nelson today, and before heading home had a evening fish around Pippin island, was high tide and beautiful weather. Probably launched around 4pm if not a little earlier.

Drift fish a point still inside Cable bay but nothing happened so headed over to the outer point. Changed to ledger rigs and quite quickly had a nice Pannie, that was followed by three more. Two of better size. A strayline rig I had forgotten about was grabbed by a monster Kahawai which gave a good fight.

The fishing slowed around dusk and had no bites after dark. Was back on the road and heading home by 8pm.
