oops..now off to fillet fish25/01/2013 at 9:37 pm #22548MiliwolfParticipant
Yeah, if you head up north you would get more. But referring to around Banks Peninsula.
IMO Moki and Snapper fights are comparable, the main difference being the Snapper violent head shakes.26/01/2013 at 12:14 am #22551fishforpotParticipant

my thoughts exactly socky and ffp..cheers guys..couldnt get out this morning was to windy to fish..here are some better photos of yesterday mornings fish

conditions were shit this evening..easterly instead of noreast like forecasted and 20 gusting 30 knots instead of 15 dropping to 10..was almost impossible to fish only managed 2 undersized moki before i gave up..the morning will be better….26/01/2013 at 10:52 am #22557MiliwolfParticipant
You certainly been putting in the effort Shark Slayer.
Another unsuccessful 10-km troll for me tonight. DId a loop around Allports Island out from Waikawa.
Plan is to fish Okiwi tomorow, would hopefully drop anchor and berley in the a few live baits. Would also get in plenty of trolling27/01/2013 at 1:14 am #22563gunnercoopsParticipant
are there any KY down the Mak mouth today? cheers27/01/2013 at 2:21 am #22566fishforpotParticipant
Fished Bayleys this morning ….a few good sized schoolies and 4 rig caught …..
A bird workup along the beach to our West , heading East and right in the surf zone …..it got 100mtrs from us and went out 200mtrs , drifted 100mtrs past us , then back into the surf zone …..
We had some burley going which no doubt attracked the sharks that bit us off twice , both times taking everything ….top swivel and everything ..
Maybe the presence of the sharks sent the Kahawai wide , or morelikely the baitfish they were feeding on ….
Later in the morning the kahawai came back West , split into two schools …
Fantastic conditions …strangely the wind was onshore further East where Joe Public goes ….sea was flat ..
I tried a live bait – large mullet , sent it out under a balloon around 60-70mtrs out and shot the balloon …sending the mullet to the bottom to swim around above a sinker …..Jaws ate all my shit lol
Will be trying that again ….
Oh , was busy catching those pesky wee schoolies about large dogfish size , 3-4lb maybe , and doing 10 things at once I mistook a doggy for a schoolie ….it had no spots and was exactly the same colour as a schoolie …spikes were nearly invisible ….tucked it under my arm to trek back to the baitboard where the long nosed pliers are , and WHAM …….tail spike buried into the forearm …..that shit hurt like a mother fucker ….would compare the pain to the stingray tail thru my leg many years ago lol ….
The fucker died a slow painful death …tomorrow he will be seagull shit …..that’ll learn him27/01/2013 at 2:44 am #22567
