    Been fishing 2 rods lately one with crab other with fish baits. If the rig and eles are on bite you’ll find you don’t need to have two rods out with crab or you’ll be hooking up on both or not having time to keep the both baited up. I know people like PierMaster fish 3 or 4 rods at a time all with crab baits and have good success though.

    As for seven gillers I’ve released all of the ones I’ve had apart from the first one I ever caught. First one was filleted and I didn’t think it was that bad eating although it was a smaller one around 4 or 5 foot apparently the bigger they get the worse they are to eat. I don’t really see the point in eating things like seven gillers especially since they’re decreasing in numbers and it’s not that hard to go out and catch something a bit more plentiful to eat.

    Swell conditions looking great for the weekend and looks like it’s gonna be a nice day tomorrow.

    Yeah catch herring and kahawai during the day for bait that night. I’ve still had some decent fish during the day even on really bright sunny days when the water has been clear as but other times it’s just been completely dead.

    Went for another fish tonight, it poured with rain all night and the wind never really picked up. Found myself fishing Monkey Bay around 8pm. Two rods again, both initially baited with cooked prawn. Threw my crab pot off the rocks.. After a while a medium-large rig grabbed my prawn bait and it was landed. Were catching reasonable number of crabs so baited one rod with fresh crab. Two more medium size Rig was then caught over fading light on the crab bait. Caught plenty of paddle crabs which is also nice to have in the freezer.

    Was a reasonable swell smashing in, tide was fairly high, warm humid night with a occasional breeze and spit of rain. Moon also rose just before I lift around 10pm.
