Yep Number 6 marker is fishing well for Gurnard too & their hitting baby squid on the hook at the moment in big numbers! Recurve 4/0 Mustard Demons are the flavour at the moment.

Their were some nice fat Sea Trout in the harbor last week as John Moran and myself discovered.
Landing some nice big ones, it was noted how half the time the fish were Broaching out of water and taking out line {  just like mini marlins we reckon } So we had a good morning out on the salt
only just managed to get the buggers in the dish washer!!

Tongue Yep K Y running well yesterday so I managed to get the smoke house cranked up with a few coldies while I was waiting!! Small snapper just starting to show up now so might head into shallow water next time out to stop the plague harassing the baits!!

No that wasn't me Kevin, those people came and anchored up about 50m away from me and about 30 mins later I packed up and went home (around 3pm I think?), but yeah that was the spot I was fishing

Kevin - All of those fish bar 1 gurnard were caught straight out from Matakawau boat ramp.

Was was you in the white hardtop then (nice boat).  I said you must be catching well there as we passed on our way back as you were there when we went out and still in the same spot when we went home.
