Hi all, Been a bit quiet on the Fish'n front lately, mainly due to weather and sea not playing ball. Was good to get out with Brother Mick for a catchup and a fish! We headed A bit South for a safer launch as mokau beach was pumping! Alot of patients waiting in the Surf and finally a lull and we were off in the little Mac jumping a few back swells as the next set formedLOL We settled in around 15 metres and off to work with Sabiki's to catch bait for Straylines. Slim Pickings for the first hour but finally some Kahawai and Mackeral were boated! I generally only put a whole Pilly on if we have nothing Fresh, as they are easily yanked off by the bigger Snaps before you have a chance to hook up. Once a few Straylines were set it was a couple of hours before anything decent showed interest. I got a good strong run and hooked up a Snap 7 odd kgs. Played it in, a couple of shots and released it back. During the two odd hours before that we caught alot of Gurnhard and Snaps to 3 kgs on our Sabiki's, so had alot for eating. another hour went by with quiet fishing, pulled anchor and headed in. A couple of shots of myself before letting our best fish of the morning go.Beer.....

Nice report Geoff. Jeez i'd be happy with the gurnard and snaps to 3kg, you must have some bloody good Sabiki's. Weather looks to be settled rest of week, assume your out again chasing that 30lb Easter special?
Why choose either diving or fishing when you can do both. Besides crayfish tail is very good bait!!

Hi CrayZfish! I make my own Sabiki's, big green beads and decent 1/0 Circles. Alot stronger than Shop ones. Easter looking extremely good! Have four Hamilton mates fishing here plus local mates for one of our $20 pay in, heaviest Snap over the weekend takes the lootLOL Cheers....

At least youve got some home advantage mate. Good luck don't embarrass them too much.
