    looks like im going down there for a fishing trip in a fortnight,been talked into it, we have our own huntsman crusader and a doc place to stay in, what should i expect to catch and is it any good down there..

    cheers dave


    oh it is amazing. Expect to catch things from tope-doggys-red cod-blue cod-moki-tarakihi-trumpeter all from shore-wrasse mullet spotties all kinda of fish. but use blue cod for bait and ull be right


    You make it sound like such a chore.
    When I got my Commercial chopper licence a couple of months back, we (missus and I) took a flight down there from Invercargill.
    Lovely place, great people, although you might want to save up for buying things at the shops there, no McD’s, but they do have a service where they will batter any seafood you catch, to your taste.
    Honestly, I wouldn’t mind living there, of course it wasn’t the middle of winter either.
    Guy I met there, Pete, said it is the be all and end all of shark fishing, he said that if you can haul it in without losing an arm or a leg, it’s yours!
    Last guy that caught a shark there got pulled back into the sea, they haven’t seen him since, so the story goes.
