    Well, all true enough @stingray. The south island snapper did elude my lures this trip. They did claim plenty of cod, gurnard, kahawai and a trevally but not a snapper.
    My fishing partner @Munsey does have a lot to answer for though.
    Firstly posting the photo of the spotties, secondly setting the boat in such a way that the burley trail ran under the boat straight to his side, and finally attempting to cut off my lure casting arm while swatting wasps with a large filleting knife.
    Despite the constant ribbing I got from (almost) everyone about fishing with lures it was a great trip with a lot of great people and I will be there again at the drop of a hat (if invited).
    Kingfish will definitely be on the menu next time.

    What can I say...................to me it looks like that lure is tied on backwards.
    To be fair I have caught a couple of snapper and a heap of gurnard on a similar lure not that long ago

    I'd much rather use them instead of bait as its a more active way to fish

    @Shearer The reason the Snapper where on my side of the boat is probably because your side may have resembled a scene from Pearl Harbour .The aerial bombardment of lures, jigs& soft baits was relentless & obviously Scarry for the Snaps . The spotties photo was just to show those people that only thought that French Pass was not just a world renowned spot for large Kingfish and Snapper , its got its place as a top spottie spot too . My apologies for your near death experience with fillet knife , I to looking forward to going back , and yes we have some unfinished business with those Kingfish

    Just a FYI guys. This is how much meat I got out of that one snapper head and wings......thats a dessert spoon on the side.



    It was more than my family of four could eat for tea with chips and salad.

    Yea but it just shows why that stingray under the wharf is 2m wide .
    Even your average 6-12pounder has a lot of meat in those wings and head.....I am as guilty as most but I do save some bigger ones for myself and to give away to those that appreciate them.

    Good meat too. Better than the fillets off a big fish IMO.

    Controversial finfish research facility at Okiwi Bay close to completion

    • 2



    DAVID OLDHAM
    Work on fish food company Skretting's controversial project at Okiwi Bay has drawn fierce opposition from locals.



    Nearly two years on from being given the green light to construct a new research facility in the Marlborough Sounds, work on fish food company Skretting's controversial project at Okiwi Bay is just weeks away from completion.
    Skretting NZ technical manager Ben Wybourne said despite some delays in the arrival of main trial tanks, most of the main equipment and systems had been installed.
    "All going well, we'll have our first fish within the next two months," he said.
    The proposal had met fierce opposition from Okiwi Bay residents who organised protests, petitions and provided submissions to voice their concerns over noise, light pollution and environmental impacts.
    READ MORE:
    * Skretting Ltd granted permission to establish a finfish research facility at Okiwi Bay in the Marlborough Sounds
    * Okiwi Bay residents ready to fight fish farm in the Marlborough Sounds
    * Residents 'devastated' as finfish facility approved for Okiwi Bay

    At the time of the resource consent being granted, Okiwi Bay resident Diana Taylor said she was "very disappointed" at the outcome.
    "I think [there's] a number of issues and they combine to make it an upheaval in the bay, to our way of life."
    "Here's a commercial operation that's going to be 24/7, 365 days a year, for 16 or 17 years. It's going to have a huge impact."
    Supplied
    A clear message to fish food giant Skretting from an Okiwi Bay resident.



    The Marlborough District Council initially received 219 submissions in relation to Skretting's application, of which 10 were in support and 209 were opposed.
    Commissioner Ron Crosby granted the company permission to establish the facility in Okiwi Bay in a 71-page decision, released on July 7 2016.


    Skretting received the final go-ahead in late February 2017, after an environment court appeal lodged by three individuals against the MDC decision was resolved prior to the matter being heard.
    As part of an agreement between the parties, Skretting was required to extend the fixed location of its discharge pipeline to a 200m distance at high tide from the mean high water mark. .
    Wybourne said the appeal had delayed construction of the facility by six months and had "added a lot of cost" to the project.
    However, the building process had gone well since then and he was confident that the finished facility would be an unobtrusive but useful addition to the Sounds.
    "I'm sure there's a handful of people who are still never going to like it as an idea, but I've been pleased how little on-going opposition there has been, actually."
    "We just hope to be quiet and not be a big issue and I'm sure it won't be - I think people will find this really interesting and we'll be very happy for them to come and look at the fish once we're up and running."
    "We can't wait for it to start because we've got questions that we want to answer and learn about."
    Okiwi Bay Residents' Association chairman Tim Greenhough was approached for comment.

    All good @Munsey they are using the big green shed behind the trailer park which was used for ( now defunct ) scallop enhancement ..but they are also 300 meters from the very well used community centre so any light noise or smell, im100% sure the local council and PM will be made awear of it!

    Yes they are raising fish but so does food and plant research in Nelson, I expect they will be mointeerd as hard if not harder than these guys ...we already have bronzes and huge rays in the bay which we all blissfully swim by!

    First the $$$ have to last and as I've seen in the past best ideas and intentions don't work long ...we have a inner bay temp of 8 degrees in water probably lower with a heavy rain fall along with a huge bubble of fresh water , then in summer it will be higher than 22 with very low water exchange ..good luck to them!
