As requested by a few of the LBG fishos on here it is time for us to start up our own hall of fame specifically for landbased captures.
 
So post away...

try keep the spam / chit chat to a minimum. While congratulations posts are great etc they will be pruned out everyone once in a while to keep this thread as primarily hall of famers only

Looks like everyone's being a bit shy! it's not like fishos to be shy about telling stories about great fish they've caught. Sheesh, my non-fishing mates/colleagues are probably bored to tears of my stories. Not that I bother asking them of course LOL
Does someone need to get the ball rolling?
How about this one to get us started...I'm sure there are many better ones but we should get this started. I love hearing about great fish that other people are catching. Not as much as catching them myself of course though Wink
Angler: Me
Date of Capture: A while ago!
Species: come on, you can tell from the photo
Weight: 21lb
Whole straylined pilly
Land-based at the top of the coromandel. Fished 8 hours. One throwback in the first 15 mins and then this at the very end of the day. Amazzing how often it happens on the call of 'last baits'.
Fight time: seemed like about 30 seconds, was apparently about 10 mins,
Gaffman: my non-fisho mate on his first land-based fishing trip!

Okay, here's one of my faves. Just because it was caught at a place I least expected to get a decent snap. Thought it was a stingy at first. Have since caught 2 x 6lbers and another 10lber at the same spot.


ANGLER: Me

Date of capture: 27 September 2006

Species: Snap

Weight: 10lb

Rig / bait: Baitrunner 6500, 13ft DAM surfcaster, 10kg Maxima Tournament Silver mono, Single 6/0 circle hook ledger rig, stinky pilly.

Location: MILFord Beach

Fight time: Not long

What's the cheapest type of meat? Dear balls. They're under a buck.

Nice one Forsyth....good to get this kicked off!
 
Doesn't have to be biggest fish btw guys. Any captures that are different (eg hapuka off the rocks) or unexpected or PB's etc are worthy of posting.

Not a huge snapper by all means, but it was my first 10lb plus snapper off the rocks and went 11lb.
Caught it using a shimano catana 4-6kg rod and an abu T-alloy reel, on a un-weighted pillie.
 
Middle of the day, I fell asleep after an all nighter in town the night before and had yet to get some sleep.
 
Was caught up the Rodney area a few hours walk in from no where

.This is my Grandmother, landbased Waiheke Cows Bay wharf 98lb
.
.This Kahawai was taken at spirits bay in 72 went 19 1/2 lbs

.This was me a few years back 2nd biggest for the LBG comp came in 2nd

.A couple not quite at the 20lb mark but close was out with INOV8A at the Barrier.

These two here are well over 20lb although they were caught from a boat you just about had to fend the rocks off water less the 2m so it pays to fish the feet 1st

And just so you know i Love

Great photos so far, getting me amped for an LB mission.

Sadly my photos are a little more modest but rewarding catches none the less:

 

Western Coromandel 2000

Couple of sting pulling trevs

estimated 8lbs

 

 

Mimiwhangata 2004

16lb snaps

1 hook floating rig.

 

 

Bay of Islands 2005

12lb snapper

 

 

 14lb snapper won the day

(caught by me mate!!)

 

 

 

Tutukaka 2007

11lb snapper

 

 

Tutukaka 2008

10lb snapper

 
Which was then released

 

All good memories, great sport and even better to explore remote parts of NZ.
