Monday 28/1/08 6 to 9 am
 
Just back from Sergeant's Channel, and it was goin' off!  Boat limit was 40cm minimum and kept 6, and had a couple of bustoffs, one when that incompetent boob Rod Holder was in charge & I was hooked up on another fish.  Best baits were Gulp sapphire shine 5" shad followed by 4" yellow Gulp Alive minnow.  Squidgy 4" pilly did OK too.  Put back a lot of legal fish, at least 6 over 37cms.
 
Feel a bit guilty about sneaking off & not telling the rest of the 12's, but some fishos are saying a bit of publicity has turned Motuihe into a jungle.  Will be more sociable on my next trip.
 
The catch - 40 to 48 cms.

Top work again..... Its a bugger when the other half buggers off for a weekend which turns into 2 with the one vehicle with a tow bar...
 
Like they say dont get mad,, get even. Think a couple of last minute fishing weekends are on the cards, + a tow bar on the second car next week.

Well done Geoff, I was in Motuhi channel Sunday late morning but a bit slow - 2 x 43cm , 2 x 33cm. Sh*t loads of sign on the sounder but mouths shut. I can't wait to give Sargents another crack. I presume you were fishing the incoming. Did you drift that same line we normally used for the outgoing tide?

Nice going again there Geoff!!
We were out Sunday but found it very hard going coming home with only 4 around 30cm for about 5 hours fishing.
We fished Sandspit Passage off Ponui and had plenty of goldfish coming over the side but struggled to get anything bigger.
Anyway, it was good to be out there yet again!! Thumbs%20Up

Great catch FQ. We were also out Sunday morning at "you know where" and did extremely well again. Probably turned another bait fisho into a SP addict. He caught 2 x 9pounders on first trip. I had to fight to get my rod back at the end of the trip. Wednesday is looking good again on Windguru.

Hi Rocko
 
Looks like some good weather for the weekend.  Tides are a bit weak but they may still be biting.  My picks are:
Sat 6 to 9:30 am, anywhere, 4 to 5 knot SW to S
Sun 6:30 to 10 am, Rangi (yellow buoy nr Duder's spit to lighthouse), 6 to 7 knot NE
Can we see who wants to go out, and where they prefer to go and then some of us meet up?  Anyone who wants to get text advice of where we will meet can send their phone number to me in the thread or by PM.  I prefer to go on Saturday morning.

I'm planning on an early Sat morning Sargent Channel drift in a 12 (+2). my reasoning is that I may still get a reasonable tidal flow the even with the small tide and the light S wind may help push drift speed up.
