I assume it twas on squidly tacklyhack? -oh and booger-Ive seen heaps of Moki caught in the heat of a bright sunny day lunchtime..05/12/2011 at 4:42 pm #19654
I haven’t.. been kayak fishing numerous times in areas where people spear moki and on our kayaks we catch blue cod, trumpeter, wrasse, and other fish, but never moki. Same result with land fishing in similar areas in daytime but have caught moki at night. Have caught terakihi in the daytime though, which are fairly similar looking.05/12/2011 at 6:04 pm #19655tackles hackParticipant

Was just chatting to a hardcore fisherman mate who learned his trade fishing club events in Wellington fishing alongside Pete Lamb ….moki was their bread and butter ….
Cray is the preferred bait , and in the dark …..you will catch moki during the day , but keeping your baits away from the shit fish is hard work ……
Off topic , it was him I mentioned fishing a club event at Bayleys Sunday morning , he said the water is way way shallower than our spot – X , and it became apparant that fresh crab was much better bait than frozen ……it’s the first time in 2-3 years he’s returned home without a feed ….. and probably the last he will ever fish there …just not worth the effort ….
Maybe the entire beach was void of fish …..damn trawlers lol …..06/12/2011 at 6:00 am #19663151Participant

The most Bizarre Moki catch I have seen was during the day on salted bonito (I think), might of been salted Mackerel. Also seen Rig caught on pilly during the day.06/12/2011 at 6:25 am #19665
mate got one on a hamils killer ..looks like my break off was a declaration of war..feel sorry for the bugger running around with 60lb trace and a 3 oz breakaway..shark fodder!anyway..my moki spot is only a few hundred mtrs from the door..might as well fish it for a while..unless I see birds working down the beach…looks like the pines and environs will be the go for most..I love moki raw fish dishes..real nice..yum..07/12/2011 at 2:27 am #19671HIPPParticipant
