    any salmon caught out there this morning ? seen a few guys on both sides of mouth.
    we tried opihi mouth from a boat this morning. very little action at mouth but dropped longline offshore between Connollys and Beach rd.
    small greyboys, spikeys as well a couple decent treshers. one at 4-5ft and another that halfed our catch at 6-8ft. luckily he managed to cut through line before he came aboard.

    Saw a small one caught on the North side around 11ish but nothing else Taken in the 5 hours I was there. Pretty much everyone was gone after midday.

    Yeah its a very slow retrieve, let your lure sink right to the bottom and retrieve slowly so the lure is dragging along the bottom, The flounder get attracted by the lure kicking up mud/Sand etc.

    Yeah tried using corn a couple of times but didn’t have any luck with it, Dragging a lure across seems to be the best method for me, although I did loose the odd lure to snags.
