haveto get some crabs myself how many you get and what part of the tide did you do it..i normaly get mine at southshore but the low tide is to early for me,07/12/2012 at 11:35 am #22073
got my 50 crab limit in less than 30min, went to ambo tonight crabs were feeding very active till 12am so gave up and just got home, i used to get mine at southshore at low tide also in a wee pot,07/12/2012 at 6:14 pm #22074fishforpotParticipant
You will catch them anywhere along the beach in 2-3feet of water ….if you wade into any guts or channels you’ll catch them …..as said , south shore is good ……..Peir is where I go , unless I’m fishing Spencers , then I catch them where I’m fishing ..
Low tide is easier …..off the Peir Id go half tide and only 2/3rds of the way along…07/12/2012 at 9:23 pm #22075
You read my mind fishforpot, I were dropping my catcher off the pier and first drop left it for about 2 min and pulled it up with 12,07/12/2012 at 9:25 pm #22076

Pfft, commercial and Iwi have been allowed to set net all along and take their quota’s, recreational catch pales in comparison..09/12/2012 at 1:37 am #22081

Bag limits need reducing …. limit of 5 hooks on longlines/kites torpedos etc
GPS data on all commercial fishing boats …. get them 5miles from the coastline minimum …..
Sad news indeed milli09/12/2012 at 8:03 am #22084burkefishParticipant

It’s about time limits were sorted out. 20 rig or even kahawai is a ridiculous amount for anyone.
