    Sounds like the rig was patrolling the beach around High tide, was tempted to stay longer but my bait stockpile was depleted and I wanted to save the few crabs I have caught for next time. Plus I had to empty all of my Surfcasting gear from my truck and load up my Kayak equipment for a early start.

    The sea was to rough next morning to fish the spot I wanted to, so spent the day Kayaking around a Bay in the QC. Nice day but no fish to show for it. Tides are looking rather crappy for next week.

    yip right about the tides, the rig was the only sign after 2 and a half hours after the last one as all the other baits were coming in untouched so i think it was just another loan soldier.

    Fished at the pier over the weekend. Got a small rig on Saturday night on my kahawai trace on bonito. Got another small rig and another eatable sized one on Sunday night but person pulling the bigger one up lost it getting it over the rail. Got another rig last night as well. Also got a few kahawai and red cod over the weekend. The rig seem to be caught pretty far apart, but there was 4 on Sunday night including one good sized one.

    Thanks.

    Been thinking of getting same scales, but I feel the handheld ones which hook in under the fish jaw would extort quite a bit of stress on any of the bigger sharks planned for released. So thinking of making (or buying) a type of sling which would support the fish along its entire length when lifted above the ground. Something like this http://www.canlive.co.nz/boulder/images/sling.jpg Feel it would be good on sevengillers because they seem to be rather soft and floppy when carrying.

    Very nice catch Andy. A trip out to Baileys could be worthwhile now.

    Yes the new security guy is there till 5pm on weekends now. I still don’t think there’s really anyone on the week days apart from maybe the odd visit by a ranger.
