Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish caught will we realise we can't eat money.

Angler: Matt Pickford
 
Fish: 14kg approx Kingo-Jingo
 
Gaffman: Montie Baskett
 
Fight time: 15mins
 
Line: 24kg
 
Bait: Live Kahawai
 
Location: Amodeo Bay, Coro.
 
Date: Late April, 2006
 
  Not the biggest king, but Matt's first from the shore, and he got it right where the boats launch at Amodeo, in driving rain.
 
 The first shot shows the previous morning off an island off the coast- beautiful conditions all day, but not a king to be seen. Plenty of nice pannies, though.
 
 Overnight the rain hit and in the morning it was chucking it down, so we decided to have a try at the rivermouth, which was pumping out mud and general crap- the first fresh of the Autumn. While we were pulling in panfish, a couple of kings started carving up the kahawai, and Matt was the first of us to get out a livie, which lasted about 5mins.
 
 A good end to what could have been a washout day.

Here is a shot of Ahab holding a 8lb snapper from a easy walk to spot at Waiheke.  Its the biggest snap we have pulled out of that spot which always produces something.  We havent been fishing it the last year or so for no particular reason.
We have also caught kahawai, kings, trevs, squid and Ahab once hooked a very large bronzie there on a live bait which put on a amazing areial display.

Same trip to far north as the snap. Good trip. Trevally to 4.75k, kings to 19.12k and snapps to 8.42k Big%20smile
 
 
4.75k Trev again caught on 10k not a huge fish but a good enough one for me. These things were like hooking 15k kings they are wicked. I scapped with one for 30 odd minutes on 2k but lost it at the rocks. I think we landed 30 odd for the day. 4 kept and the rest released.
 
 
15k king from rod holders. Deep hooked this one so kept it for the locals. A good supply of fresh fillets gets you a long way up there. Big%20smile
 
Strange abscence of big kings on our trip this year. Never to mind we had a wicked week of fishing
