good catch kevo85 you must of got them just before the river came down in flood…i guess the sea will be dirty for a while now with all the rain on the coast.18/01/2011 at 10:02 pm #17178
Possibly elmo,but I reckon spencer park could be worth a look provided there is cloud cover to hide the moon and it should avoid the dirty water of the Mak aswell!!19/01/2011 at 2:52 am #17181
…snapper around 30 cm…

The Mac is blowing alright , and its half way to the gate at Spencers but the incoming tide is holding it back ….
The sea is pretty big tho , Id head Pines rather than Spencers once the tides going out …..19/01/2011 at 5:42 am #17186
Just got back from a solid week and a half of fishing up at kenepuru sounds,nelson and kaikoura. Got my first ever snapper ended up getting a bunch (around 15),tried for kingfish with no luck,my mrs got a moki in kaikoura and we got about 15 red cod in last 2 days there (strangely coloured red cod tho),I also hooked a red rock lobster and a couple eels,anyways heres a few pics

nice fish boomslang, you must be very please with your first snapper.
I see you were straylineing for the snapper,what was your bait,looks like squid,

yeah it was just squid, basically fished the same spot by the rocks for 2 days till I got him. I was using mussels in kaikoura. Didn’t catch a single thing with squid in kaikoura.19/01/2011 at 8:41 am #17190
nice moki, what was the length of it?21/01/2011 at 7:52 am #1720921/01/2011 at 7:21 pm #17213fishforpotParticipant
Biggest Ive seen was a 32lber ….it was exactly 5 feet long and VERY deep in the body …
The pic in the link is nowhere near as deep in the body though Id pick it closer to 6 feet long ……I doubt it would be 45 lb let alone 45 kilo
I suspect there are different varieties of gummy shark ….so who knows how big they go , 40lb is the biggest Ive heard of21/01/2011 at 7:29 pm #17214MiliwolfParticipant
Anyone know how to tell gummy sharks (Mustelus antarcticus) apart from Rig (Mustelus lenticulatus)? Both species are suppose to occur in our water.21/01/2011 at 8:17 pm #17215mulletmanParticipant
there both very simalair, and i think that one has more spots or somthing22/01/2011 at 6:29 am #17224
moki was 48cm long
