found out about a workmates fishing mission of the bricks on wednesday before waitangi day he and his mate landed 4 snapper over 20 lb and numerous others between 10 and 19 lb makes the rest of us chasing 20 lb mark look like slackers

Unfortunately its a no go now for us and probably not worth the grief to be honest.Some great ledges close by at CMV that are as good on their day.

Date: yesterday 5th oct 17

Location: just north of papaaroha.

Fight time: 20min

Gaffman: nope


Had kawahai under balloon all day and burley pumping with heaps of baitfish but no kingys around. Thought livey might of had it so reeled it in to check and this guy nailed it at my feet.
Fishing solo so manouvered it into a gut after a good fight and tail grabbed/belly flopped on it.😂
Only my 2nd kingy and both at same spot 4 years apart.

Awesome, well done. I'm well aware of the persistence required to get a kingie off the shore. Keep it up.
