Go the tinnies! Been having fun in a friend's old skool 12' Fyran and catching a couple of decent snaps from it. Doesn't get much more fun that that!

Hi Keith
Windguru & Metservice marine forecasts both look quite light in the morning.  Pretty safe bet for a 12 footer I reckon, but always check before you leave.
 
RF
High tide tomorrow 4:20 am, so outgoing in the morning.

Yes, Geoff - the weather forecasts have converged into a good outlook for tomorrow as the day has progressed. Could see you out there between 05h30-09h00.

The small tides are not the best but we can't have everything!
 
fq - probably best from 6.20 to 8.20am when tidal flow best.

Sat 2/2/08 6 to 10 am
At least 3 sets of "12's" met up in Sergeant's channel.  Most did well, but I had one of my not-so-hot days.  Caught a lot of fish from 20 to 38cms, but the boat limit 40cm minimum fish were hard to find.  Not so for Betterthanwork and KarlosNZ.  The first couple of drifts, they were reeling them in & plenty over 40cms.  Also news from Keith C that he did well this morning, but not sure where coz I didn't see him.
 
 
Found KarlosNZ (Karl) first, & he was hooked into a goodun (sorry about the shots)
 
 
 
Soon after found BTW & mate (less 12-ish than usual, but I forgave him) also into the fish
 
I got a few, but struggled until I went about 2 Km's south of the channel around 9am when I got 2 over 40.  The others were kept because one had a tag, and the other 2 swallowed the hook.
 
The fish & the tag.  I have to ring Niwa to go into the draw to win a rod & reel.

Yes, between 2 of us we did well bringing home 12 snaps 400-580 and a 580 trev caught on western side of Motuihe channel but East of ferry lane. It was empty when we got there just after 6 am so, looking at the predominance of boats of the eastern side of the channel, decided to take our chances alone. It was a good choice with our boat limit soon being set to 450. Nukes were the bait of choice going thru almost two packs of 5" with Lime Ts and Atomic and Zoom getting fish. Only did 3 drifts and then decided to pack it in so as to avoid any hassles at the ramp. Will post pics later. I was outfished by my mate as far as both numbers and size as I experimented with different rigs eventually finding that 3/8 or 1/2 oz jigheads with 5" jerks seemed the best way to go.

Chilly bin is just under 600 mm. Fun it definitely was especially before 8h00 when the charters et al started arriving. We saw many small fish being caught by the many boats on anchor.

Nice fish again Keith.  For me the bigger fish stayed away, but it was still fun, especially the first drift at 6am. Were you close to the red buoys?

Yep was a good morning first drift 5 snaps all over 40cm so call was made none under 40 would be keptThumbs%20Up,
well that made things a little harder as things slow down heaps after 1st drift.
Threw back plenty and came home with 11 good sized ones.
 
Tried all sorts of baits today extrude, slug o's, strike kings but old Mr Berkley won hands down.
 
Mate also caught a old fishing rod and reel?
 
Good to meet ya FQ thats a nice little setup ya got there.

Ouch RF - that's a bit harsh. Maybe it's you or maybe its your boat but something doesn't work for me whenever I go out in your boat. We had a great morning with a newbie to sb fishing using monofilament, heavy trace etc getting a respectable number of good fish on Pink Shines. I think I kept ahead of him with "real" gear but it just goes to show that you don't need to have the braid, fluro etc to use the sb's. Sargent Channel was good to us but we were a bit greedy taking 16 fish with the best ones close to 50cm and most over 40cm. I had nukes, Strike Kings and Squidgies all hooking up happily but admit to smearing squidgie sauce on the SK's as well.

Great haul Keith. Seems like all the keen fishos are doing really well around that general area at the moment.

Good going 12's. I decided to take a break from the SP's on Saturday and take my chances on some kingi's out at the Ahahaas. Caught 2 John Dory's and got absolutely smoked by 3 kingies. Oh well, it was good while it lasted. I have defnitely learnt from that trip and will be better prepared the next trip. Now back to some SP action.
