got back out today with some lures, windy but coming from behind me so helped get the little ones out far enough. had some burley running which soon brought in the kahawai, they immediately took a fancy to this one:



landed 4 of these so had a play with some other lures but no snapper action, however i did manage a nice pannie on a pillie so dinner is sorted!

Nice work rockz, I tried yesterday but quickly gave up in the wind.  I was using a small waxwing that had enough weight to be able to cast but with the wind coming straight at me it was soon obvious that if I didn't give up I was going to have a huge birds nest with my braid being blown all over.  And I was getting seasick standing on the jetty.  Poor choice of location given the wind direction, lesson learned.

yeah it definitely helps to be able to fish both side of the peninsular depending on wind.

I knew rapalas are deadly to brownies, but my question was, "Do they work for kahawais in the gulf."


So, I picked a nice day and went out with them

On the third cast, I got the first one.


Two minutes later, got another one.


Then, every two or three casts, I hooked up kahawais.
CD9s were killers for them.



finally, they got bored of CD9s, so I grabbed a jig, then I cast to where I couldn't with rapalas,
had fun time again.
I don't remember how many fish I landed,
just so many!

popped out today for a wee play, long story here: 

http://www.fishing.net.nz/asp_forums/anyone-get-out-today_topic30565_page429.html

any ways what do you guys think about swapping out these thin trebles for some live bait or small in line hooks?

as i diving lure i would think the trebles wouldn't be as important as with a surface lure?
or am i way off in thinking this?

any advice much appreciated, cheers.

been a while since i was last here!
popped out after the footy down to the wade to test out some new stickbaits that arrived this week.
seem to have a good action and cast very well, they even catch fish although not the size i was after...LOL



for those that are interested lure is 120mm and 28g sinking.
