Anyone know any good places around napier to fish?. and what species is likely at this time of year and what baits to use? thanks
The water is usually a good place to start sammy boy use pillies and catch snapper
no shit lol. yeh so pilchard and catch a snapper?
i goin up on tuesday. for a couple of weeks. what size hooks for snapper?
I would probably trend towards smaller rather then larger hooks.
and what type of trace would be ideal?
Similar to what you would use for Rig… So between 40-80lb. From what I have read on the TT forums the beaches are shallow so should optimize rigs for distance casting.
alrighty , cheers for that. what would the shark fishing be like around there?
They catch Rig, sounds similar to the east coast of the SI.
From memory, there is suppose to be good Sevengiller/tope fishing around Mahia Peninsula.
Throw a thread up on the tackletatics forum, probably would get advice from people who fish there,
oh awesome. i wouldnt mind a bronzie while im here lol. dont like my chances
