Nice fish guys
Whats your general location where you fish

Still learning my home patch...Cornwallis on the Manukau to Narrowneck east side

Was out yesterday off NN, all small snaps off Taka cliffs, anchored up with baits, best was 36 size on the outgoing, mullet did it for me... nice getting the yak out again

Hi BananaBoat.  Castor, campbells, mairangi, and murrays bays for me is my local.  If I’m feeling very energetic l paddle as far as up to browns bay by reef there to get among the massive schools of gurnard. You can launch there as well, and can it can be excellent fishing, also if you are thirsty afterwards has excellent pubs ... my favourite is the deep creek.
To get fish like Dan did today you need to go a tad further north.. like an hours drive, at a guess, might be bit less depending on traffic, although probably not a lot of traffic 6am in morning. Either way too early.Wink

Anywhere between Whangaporaoa and Leigh Bananaboat. Army Bay, Wenderholm, Sullivans Bay, Martins Bay, Algies Bay, Jones Bay, Matheson Bay and Leigh.

My fave spot? Matheson just edges Martins
Best spot probably Jones as there is so much you can do there a big area to cover. And some very nice fish to catch.

One King and one snapper kept for the score board this morning.

Under the stars on my third cast had an epic three minute fight with a horse of a snapper that he won busting me eventually on a bommie. Dunno how I lasted so long!

Great morning on flat seas.

One of the local kids kindly took that shot I reckon he watches too much ITM with that angle.

Got it up quick and had him circling below me like a Yellowfin for ages. Pulled him onboard green as was a mission, out of practice.

I thought from the way you're standing in the photo that for a moment we finally had proof that Muppet does indeed walk on water! LOL

Great day, mate. You'll be reliving that tussle and the lost snapper for through the working week.

Good luck for your Villa boys tomorrow morning in their mission to stay up.

Ha cheers Lester just saw they did it!

Yes the snapper, I actually was not to upset as he played it so well. Wish my f'ing Gopro had of worked. And for the king who was towing me side ways of which the 400 is miles better than the Reload!
