The Boys in the work shop shot out afterwork last night and had thier first go with the Kontiki. They went down the South Beach of Wanganui. They caught this Snapper and lost the Kontiki, a mate of the guy that owns it found it on the beach this morning and returned it before daylight. Snapper on the BBQ for lunch in factory today.
Not bad for thier first effort

Weight unknown can only guess.  2 of us couldn't move it.  4 - 5m 400lb lead 10/0 circle hook 18kg mainline 10 - 15kg 7ft snapper rod Daiwa sealine 600h real.  2 1/2 hours fight.  Pakiri 30/11/2008.

First one of many i hope.  After 2 years of trying to catch kingi's and 1 trip with a 45 min soak time  trying to catch sharks I think I might just carry on chasing them.  Hammerhead next just as soon as we get a bronzie for my partner in crime

Didn't chuck it on some proper scales but estimated at about 17lb. You can tell from the grin how stoked I was. Was rough as guts that day. My missus got caught out by the swell and washed in. I jumped in and rescued her losing my rod and reel in the process. Should have left her........................jokes guys....jokes. Who would fillet and cook the catch if she drownedLOL

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.

Here's a nice 13kg king I caught last April off Kauri Point, Birkenhead. Got him on a rapala  x-rap slashbait, after he'd scoffed my piper livie without hooking up. 30lb spectra braid, (actually probably more like 60lb) Shimano Beastmaster and Thunnus.

10 min fight, complicated at the end when he tangled up in my berley bag, getting the trebles hooked up in them. About four boats watched enviously and gave a big cheer when I landed him- they didn't seem to be doing too well. One boat came in and took a photo-I was fishing by myself which is why I'm not in the shot.
