Your dead right , I shoulda taken a closer look ….. caught enough of the suckers , as seahunter will confirm , he gets to eat them all lol ……
The yellow around the gills “at a glance” made me think it was a cod …. pretty sure I caught one years ago at the cliffs ….the gills sorta concertinaed out and were a striking yellow17/12/2011 at 10:49 am #19846MiliwolfParticipant
Nasty breezy night, so went fishing
Went to a old favorite the small pier at the grove, wind was gusty and there was even a swell in the inner sounds. Water was dirty and I did not like the look of things. There was a guy already fishing there and I notice a pannie in his bucket so that got me motivated. The action was fairly steady and I landed around 7 Pannies, 1 Ray and a couple of Kahawai. The wind would calm down for a few minutes before a gale force gust would blow everything around again.18/12/2011 at 6:11 am #19849151Participant18/12/2011 at 6:48 am #19850sevengillerParticipant

Had a hour on Waikawa breakwater Friday, loads of KY in the 2-3lb mark, good fun on light trout gear. Some young lads were catching small Trevally. Tried with bait for some snapper in the evening, but too many small things stripping the baits in seconds!18/12/2011 at 7:33 pm #19857yellowfinParticipant
Hey seven giller, look carefully at the clues left by justfishing.
1) definately saltwater fish.
2) no stones or shingle in photo
3) sand everywhere
Therefore I can deduce that above fish were probably caught between sumner to leithfeild beach.18/12/2011 at 7:49 pm #19858
