yeah bait..ran out a bait as wasted few of 10 pack n save pillies at first spot I tried. Luckily scored three macks on handline. Which gave 6 baits cut in half. Still ran out bait just when started catching better fish. Was only about 250m out. So almost compliant.  Wink

Haha 😂 yeah I think that’s ok. I was in the same range. Quite funny the wind started out east for about the first 45 minutes. Turned NW then the fish started to bite hard out.

Paddled out in the twilight off Maraetai in absolute perfect conditions. Slow start but once the sun came up the action was hard and fast. Kept the first 7 legal snappers I caught throwing back plenty of small ones. Four on soft bait ( laguna shrimp) and the three biggest on the bruised banana slider. Off the water at 830am. Cracker of a morning, went for a swim after I got back.

Nice fish lads, you've inspired me.
 I'm now going to buy more fishing tackle online, when NZ opens up in 2022 and I get to see all these packages  in the mail, it'll be like Christmas, something to look forward to.

Went out tonight leaving at 4 pm to celebrate mental heath week and daylight saving.  Too many small fish and a very pesky cormorant to go with the bitter cold southerly wind. Came in early with one keeper. Nothing like yesterday but that is fishing. At least have a few fillets to drop off at my parents tomorrow afternoon after my 2nd COVID jab.

Nice Shane. I managed to “borrow” a fish2kayak to explore my local waters. But the explosion of great whites in my local area has meant I’m leaning more towards the boat.
I miss killing things in NZ

Yeah Rowan those Ozzie whites are bit like Melbourne construction protesters, bit more aggressive than the NZ version. You have got a safe NZ made surtees boat too. Be a big shark that takes you in that.

Here's a fisheries report on snapper in Port Phillip Bay Victoria, this content is a stretch for the Auckland kayak forum, but some of the general information on snapper could be of interest to someone over the ditch. Victoria's management of their fishery may have lessons for other regions.

The fisheries clip was nerd stuff for the enthusiast,but amazing how the big snapps return to the Bay in October , right about now I'd guess.
The shelter of the Bay and the zooplankto and nutrients from the Yarra river were said to be vital for the snapper larvae surviving their first 20 days, before they become juveniles and can feed on the bottom. The gopro clip of the snapper tornado, so called Broadcast spawning was interesting too. They can release 800,000 eggs while spawning, but they do that multiple times a season.

I hope a few big reds make their way along your strip.

Me & a mate did NN this morning.... bloody wind against tide proved hard going for me to begin with, took ages to find them, got a feed up 43cm on piper, salted mullet, salted pillies
Probably doz or so yaks out there.... bit chilly in the WNW breeze, was surposed to have been SW10, which would have been ideal.... good to be out again

Great late morning excursion off bays launching about 10 in by 1.30 pm. Took 5 nice 40 cm snapper and threw quite a few other well legal fish back. Got to have a paddle near the orcas frequenting bays on way in which was cool. The water was also so crystal clear today, interesting paddling over all the reefs. 

My new rock grapnel anchor set up got stuck but managed to free it. Have set up so I can put handle piece of drain pipe attached to old bulk nylon spool warp goes on into a rod holder and basically paddle round to free it. Works well and far safer than trying to pull stuck anchor up in a kayak by hand.
