OK Piwi, just to keep you happy. Here's my best 2 trout off the yak. Weighed around 3kg each. The only scales I had to weigh the snapp bottomed out at 10kg so I guess it was a little bigger than that.

Probably one of them fly fishing guru's will give us the low down on rainbows and searunners. Caught a  Jack salmon the colour of the lower rainbow trout pictured at Acheron slip in the Rakaia above the gorge and was told by the guy I was with that it was "colouring up" for spawning, aparently they end up charcoal black. The salmon had way less fat on it than the silverys down river so maybe thats whats up with 'bow.



Posted By: Rainbow
Date Posted: 18 Jul 2008 at 4:29pm

The pale white colour of the bottom trout is the result of that side having been in contact with whatever it was lying on,    When caught it would have been like a normal trout.   In this case as a jack it showed the red flanks prior to spawning.

Goo looking fish Charlie.

BTW if you want to learn the Tongariro Roll Cast there is a clinic on at the National Trout Center Sat. 23 Aug.

I see what you mean, I thought Piwi was being humourous and reffering to the snapper, doh! No Rainbow is right it was lying in the yak well on that side. Definately not a searunner.
 
Rainbow I would be interested in the Tonga roll cast clinic, where do I book in?

Hi Charlie

You can book at DOC Turangi Trout Center.   Contact the manager Ken Kimmings and tell him you have talked to me as the course may already be booked out.   Cost $75 which goes to the Trout Center Society.

GO on the Sporting Life website for all the details.

HLD Generally we just troll a couple of lures. We seem to have luck with a small pink lure, however purple/black and green/yellow work as well.
Keep an ear to the VHF and listen where the boats are catching them - can save a bit of paddling. Like any game fish, keep the line over the bow. If you've had to tighten up the drag, loosen it off when you get them close to the yak.
Then if you want some real fun, put a big hook in it and throw it back over the sideLOL

Mr Lucanus did not work for me that well but it did get some grunty bites. Limitless landed a nice one around 10.6kg and baits were the favourite on the menu today.

LEVCAT mate, half the battle is hooking up and landing it! The biggest half is getting on the spot in the first place! I cannot take the credit this time (yesterday) for the X spot as Limitless guided me there and I just fished up wind from him (not because of his farts, just out of respect for his patch). However I can say that when I caught my 10kg one the previous week end, the bugger came over to me and dropped his tackle very close to me(fishin gear guys and dollsShocked) but alas my PB hooked up within a couple of minutes of his arrival!
This guy has clocked up many good locations over the years and out of respect I did not even mark any spots as waypoints (bugger!)
Seeing him with his new toy (side imaging/scan sonar) is like watching an SAR helicopter pilot hover over a scene and keeping postion on the target area to secure the load!
I'm learning so much at the moment and it is great. I love seeing my baits sinking to the bottom on the FF and even better when Mr fishy pops over to it and has a chomp!
Cheers

Not a biggy, but quite chuffed with it - Nabbed during an emergency fish after work.

Thought I'd drop in here as a "Speed-Fishing Challenge"Wink
53cm(to fork) divided by 5 minutes = Score of 10.6

Hit the water at 5:30, on the mark at 5:50, fish on 5:55, landed 6:20
As usual, it took the lightest rig (my trout spinning rod, a wee Shimano FX4000 reel spooled with 4lb mono and a 1/4oz nuke chook),  Clocked in at 21" and 6lb. Excellent condition and chilling down now Big%20smile


The rest of the evening was filled with winding in and chucking back thousands of goldfish in the 30cm rangeConfused

Fish:             John Dory (Zeus faber)
Weight:         7lb 2oz / 3.2kg  (New PB Thumbs%20Up)
Length:         52cm (with mouth shut)  54cm extended - but that's cheatingLOL
Bait:             Wee Kahawai livie fished on bottom with 8/0 circle
Date/Time:    1800Hrs 6/12/08
Location:       Whangaroa Harbour
 
 I had been plagued by 30cm snaps all afternoon and was in the process of unhooking number 45,332 when the livie gave a quick whizz on the drag then stopped and just sat with an unmoving curve in the rod.
 
That was about the extent of the battle, he came up with no fuss - My new PB Dory
 
...And the livie was still kicking, so I reached into its mouth (Trawlermouth here fitted my clenched fist in easily - up as far as my watch) and grabbed it back to go another round! 
 It's a tough life being on the bottom of the food chain, eh?

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.

The solution to any problem - work, money, love, whatever - is to go fishing - the worse the problem the longer the fishing trip should be.

Hey,

Still fought like a deamon! I genuinely thought it was a king with the sheer volume of line it pulled and the way it towed me around. I hooked it off the bottom so didn't get reefed thankfully.
