maori fishing calender said bad .Tides were coming in and weather was looking ok so went out anyway.When I arrived a guy was pulling in a 15 odd pounder shark so was looking hopeful.
Had a tail wind so could cast 80-90 m .First cast got a greyboy then 4 more then a small rig and a first while surfcasting got a flounder.
Kept 1 20 pound greyboy…[Read more]
thanks for the replies.
I never am able to cast past the breakers round here,lots of sets of waves,its usually in the thick of it.
I have a fishing kayak but i only loke to take it out on a flat sea but then it will be near reefs for blue cod ect
yea I think boats must have been trawling in close at the spot I normally go to.
Normally I catch at least 3 fish or sharks sometimes 8 everytime without fail.But the last 5 times ive been out not a single fish ,not even a bite.Same baits same casts same setups.
Its just weird.Im hanging out for a feed of rig but I cant even catch a dog.
It sucks…[Read more]

had a crap start to this afternoons fishing walked all the way to the spot and found my reel was almost seized,could just wind it no more,so walked all way back to the car and used some oil from the dipstick to lube up the bearings,finally got it to free wind.
Baited up with raw prawn,cast out,rod in rod holder (warrata with a pvc pipe wired…[Read more]
oh so you have had success with the spoon?I am thinking you need a small treble hook for the spoon to fit the flounder mouth not the standard size?
do you bait the hook as well or just by it self,what do you bait it with if you do?
went out to the beach to get the incoming tide to try a spoon draged along the bottom,it was way to windy so i went to the estuery as it hooks around and is sheltered from the wind.
tried the spoon lure but every cast hooked up with weed even though the water conditions were clear so tied a leger rig with weights at each end to keep the bait…[Read more]
