Quite a bit to report on…
Thursday night fished the grove arm, perfect weather caught a single Kahawai.
Friday night fished the Kenepuru heads, got there at change of light. Caught three baby eagle rays and a Kahawai before dark. After dark caught a Sting ray. Got up to fish the change of light Saturday morning but caught nothing.
Saturday evening: fished titirangi into the night, caught a few Kahawai during the day and they went crazy at change of light. After dark a steady stream of carpets kept me busy. Fished the beach again this morning, caught a decent size eagle ray but that was it.
Weather was fine all weekend, High tide was around 9pm. No Snapper
A few gurnard bodies on the rocks at titirangi, also saw one out snorkeling.28/02/2010 at 7:10 am #15027fishforpotParticipant

Stingray from the Pier on Saturday night.
Only a small one but put up the hardest fight I’ve ever had with a fish, maybe just because it was from the Pier. Had about 3 long unstoppable runs with drag as tight as it would go, got it in close a couple times and ran back out, was hoping for a shark of some sort until I saw it. Dunno how long it took to land but would’ve been over half an hour.04/03/2010 at 7:26 am #15049
ive roughly got the time to land zac
it was bout 1hour 15mins
nd theres my legs! ahhh lol07/03/2010 at 9:04 am #15083
Winning fish from birdlings comp today:
I went to interclub competition at South Rakaia, only caught dogfish. Other people got a few skate and schoolies. I was the only entrant in the intermediate group and won a trophy, $7 and a hat for my dogfish.07/03/2010 at 7:33 pm #15085

Went and fished a point in the Pelerous sounds tonight, parked the car around 6pm then started the tricky walk in. Was halfway to the point when I realised I left the car keys in the passenger door :'(. There was a gentle wind, and a clear sky. Got to the point with time to spare and managed to find suitable locations for the rock spikes. Anchovies was the chosen bait for the day, and the change of light spotties love them, must bring a more durable alternative next time but I was expecting to catch a Kahawai quite quickly for bait but that did not occur. After dark three Snapper were landed, kept two which swallowed my circle hooks, caught a baby stingray.
Fished last half of outgoing tide and around low. Starting to think this tide is more productive then over high. The reason for choosing this tide is so I could access the point and get back again in the dark. Were my first shore based Snapper this Summer .
