Spent a couple of hours fishing ocean bay point in Port Underwood, these a nice ledge there straight into 5-6m of water. Dissolved 5kg of Burley into the water and attracted 3 medium size Kahawai and a couple of mullets. Gave up in disgust. Wind was a pain.24/10/2010 at 3:57 am #16210

nice fish! used to fish there and wakanui a bit. cooked prawns were consistent performers bait wise.26/10/2010 at 1:46 pm #16220
Haven’t had any luck with cooked prawns. Used them last time I was at wakanui and only bite I got was on old black crabs nothing on the prawns. Really need to stock up on some fresh crabs for the freezer so they last a few weeks.
Might head out to wakanui now for a bit of a 3am fish and use up the rest of the cooked prawns I’ve got.28/10/2010 at 6:51 am #16222
Didn’t end up going to wakanui the other night but fished for a few hours at wakanui this afternoon. Only had prawns for bait but hooked a small rig not long after arriving which I released. Rebaited and caught another slightly bigger rig, decided to keep it in case I didn’t get any more which turned out to be the case. Got a small ele before packing up just as the southerly change and rain showed up. Not the best fishing but I’m sure they’re out there just need to get some crab baits, really not a fan of prawns.

Whats with the cut tail Zac ????? if you want to bleed a fish , can I suggest you open the gill area , or cut thru in front of that , expose the main artery from the heart to the gills and carefully cut that ….DO NOT kill the fish ……let it use its own heart to pump its blood out ……..
Someone showed me this trick years ago ……….blue cod turn ghost white when bled right ……its the way the commercial boys do the tuna they get $20 000 a fish for
Oh , and that must be a HUGE reel our using lol …….but hey , its better than no elephant fish ……I might head out Sunday sparrow fart and try my luck29/10/2010 at 4:55 am #16234
Yeah wasn’t the biggest fish probably shoulda let it go. Was only planning on keeping one rig and one ele to take home woulda released anymore. I didn’t really cut the tail to bleed it was just cutting all the fins off but then decided to take a picture first before I gutted it etc29/10/2010 at 5:16 am #16235
looks to be an okuma axeon reel29/10/2010 at 5:53 am #16236fishforpotParticipant
I do the same before they go in the chilly bin ……..first thing I do before anything else is I pick up to big stones and smack one onto the other breaking off the spike ……..those bastards know how t use that sucker …..
I watched one a few years back , it flicked itself into the air and came down spike first on this guys foot …I was standing beside him ….it went right thru his big toe …squealed like a little girl …his sandshoes didnt slow it down , right thru the lot
