Got out for a fish yesterday afternoon over high tide with the wife and young boys, was great days fishing not for the catch but for the time spent with the family. Suspect sea temps still low in this area as the usual winter catch were bagged red cod and spinys.
Ok so what would be your guys pick of baits for targeting ele’s, and more importantly are they being caught casting to the horizon or in very close ie very short casts? Is there anything special that you guys do to target them or is it pretty much if they are there they will take a bait? Am trying to work out some options for targeting them here…[Read more]
Finally managing to get out for a fish and last night caught my first rig for the season about 6.5kgs. And then took my oldest boy (3 and a half years) out fishing today, he kept catching crabs on his line they would hold on till the surface and then let go, but its ok cos daddy caught some in his net!!!
Been a long time since I posted on here so thought I might post a report.
Wet a few baits at Clifford bay this arvo. Sea was dirty but relatively calm , slight nor – nor west breeze. Fishing was slow and the results were two good tope between 4 to 5 ft which were in very good nick and a welcome surprise…[Read more]
Depends on how much weight you have on and how much weight you can put into casting, iv in the past broken 40lb leaders with 4oz and big bait.

I recommend using them but again many dont all depends on theamount of power put into…[Read more]

[quote="The fiery ginga":1yhal5xy]yea i reckon 6-7kg roughly looking at that, doesnt look 9kg[/quote:1yhal5xy]
You know your fish,yip you’d probably be right with that estimate although she was heavy in pup so felt a little heavier than looked.
[quote="The fiery ginga":12jw5wfv]not a bad rig HLS[/quote:12jw5wfv]
Yea good fish but had no fight was strange even thought it was a skate until i seen its dorsal fin estimate 8to 9kg. Again on half a paddlecrab with back shell removed,(crabs sourced from packnsave, very handy.)
I would have to say its a shame when some half wit (fishybishy) starts turning things personal, just because they are a retailer of such products. There is alot to be said for observation, can you now for everyone you feel going to read mili’s post give us fishybishy some hard scientific evidence that glow tubing (i mean does it really improve…[Read more]
You may have heard mili, there is a spot between seaview beach and the Awatere river mouth, around midway that apparently used to produce grouper from the beach based on reports of the old locals out seddon way.
