    We have caught quite a few eels around here from in the harbour (heaps of them) to out at Motiti and Karewa islands, they go out to spawn and stuff so not uncommon to catch them in the ocean. I don't know what a silverbelly is though but we have caught short and longfin.
    Werawhakaui?

    Big conger, would be my guess, six feet long and very thick threw the body, guessing 200mm-250mm, brown, white belly, and grumpy. there was know way, I was having him, in the boat, and he can keep the hook.
    snapper have been iked spiked, to kill them,

    Did alright this morning. Bit of chop for a start but turned very pleasant indeed.

    More carrots and big Kahawai than snapper but came home with a couple of feeds for me and a mates families.

    Good bins...handels are a week point tho ......I have spares now tho I probably shouldn't try and jerk it up and onto the side of the boat full of snapper....nearly split me ringgear!

    Got out yesterday morning out oagain with a mate. Took dads wee boat. Absolutely dead flat out there and a beautiful day. The sun was shining and there was no wind. Set the net off the island and promptly left to chase after some kahawai that were going berserk boiling. Took 5 each, couple for me and couple for the old man. Kahawai are great fun to catch. Especially on the little 7ft 6kg softbait rods I've got. First time I think I've ever become a catch and release fisherman today. Caught another 20 or so which we put back in the water. Such great fun pulling them in and waiting for them to go nuts as they see the boat and take off.

    Went and had a go for some snapper. Hooked up on one but dropped in bringing him into the boat. Bit small anyway. Had a few runs but couldn't get one to commit to swallowing the bait.

    Picked up the net. Full of seaweed and sticks. Got 2 600 long rig and a 1500mm thresher shark. Headed back in to the ramp. Struggled to find the channel on the way in and bounced the poor prop along the bottom for a couple hundred meters. Great day out! Fish has been in the chilly with ice overnight as we drove back to chch so have to deal with that today.
