I'll keep an eye on what you fellas are up to as I'm off work for a week now and keen to visit the Leigh area for a crack if you'll have me tag along.

Might head over to the Coromandel for an overnighter depending on what the weather does.

Hi mate.

I'm thinking to head to Leigh again and try to catch that fish that I lost. I know it's still there!! LOLLOL

But if I go I'll get there a little bit late (around 7~8 am) and then fishing until my live baits last. Tomorrow I'll have some drinks with friends, so to get there earlier for me would be a torture...haha

Hi Badgerbor.

Coromandel would be great. If you decide to go, please let me know. I may be keen to join you!!

Hi Rylee , welcome I'm an occasional kayak fisher along east coast bays. If you ever want to pop down the bays for fish I'm keen.
Ricardo as per last week may be opportunity next week if still keen. A lot of nice fish about these ways prior to current blow. May even have look in weekend if drops enough. Will be pretty murky after this blow. Might be one or two fish once clears and we should start to get work ups in here soon. Once they happen usually late feb but might be earlier this year is all on for lure fishing .... soft bait. jigs and small hard body lures, or if want to soak a few big baits like yellow tail, yellow eyed mullet or piper, or big pillies .

Hi fellas.

I have 2 questions:

1- Before taking a Kingfish home, do you usually bleed it?I watched some NZ videos people bleeding the fish and saying that the meat tastes better in this way. I never caught and never ever eat a kingfish, so I'd like to hear from you guys.

2- I've just bought a Drogue and I read that some people use a floater to avoid it to sink. Do you guys do the same?

Hi mate I usually kill the kingfish with a knife to the head then take guts and gills out when I get to shore. Makes for a cleaner fillet with less dark meat and makes it easier to use the frame and wings etc.

Never bothered just spike the brain and put in the rear well. Bleeding a kingfish would take a while and be messy on the yak. Never had a problem with taste or fillet prep even a few hours before it goes on ice. I always gut and gill back onshore for a cleaner job at home. Only two fish I bleed are trevally and kahawai.

Yeah a float on a drogue is handy for a yak too.
