Yesterday I was fishing near the mouth of the Kowhai River and caught a massive 1.8m Rig using dirty old squid bait.I was fishing with my partner and after no bites for about an hour I was packing up her gear and turned around to see my rod pulled out of my rod holder heading for the surf after a good fight couldnt believe the size of the rig took photos measured it with my rod.No idea how much it weight but could not carry up the beach only took the good bits hope.
First time at that spot but will be back15/11/2012 at 10:50 am #21913MiliwolfParticipant
Good job, you sound pleased with the catch.
Rig do occasionally take most baits, a few even take pilly. If you can not get crustaceans bait like Cray, Crabs or Prawn then Squid is probably the next best. Most fish would eat squid.15/11/2012 at 7:44 pm #21916AnonymousInactive
