    I was reading quite a old fishing location book. According to the book Snapper were frequently caught along the long gravely surf beaches all the way down to the Clarence.

    I have also been told storys that once the Snapper fishing was so good at Cape Cambell you were pretty much guaranteed a few decent fish within 10 minutes.

    Of course since then the commercial and recreational fishers have heavily targeted the Snapper and greatly reduced their numbers.

    So I was wondering if you have heard or seen many Snapper being caught on these east coast beaches?

    The impressions I have is that they are nothing more then a rare fluke catch now. The last ones I have heard being caught was a few years back at the Wairau diversion mouth.
