    Another beuty day out

    Weather was in my favour did not have to go back to Te kuiti this afternoon to restock the racks at the supermarket there so a quick check of the weather for wind direction mind was made up and off to Kawhia I went primo west coast conditions. Caught three small ones kept one for bait then released the following two till I got a good sized one for the smoker then it was home time. was using my pulley rig with a floating trace to keep the bait in the middle of the water column out of the crab zone.

    Hunter308 have you ever thought of turbo boosting your rod so yo can do some long range surf casting? You could start a whole new craze. Then we would have fellah's on here posting about their first 600 yard snapper. Ha ha ha ha

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    It is pretty simple I use the small orange ball floats slide it onto the trace mono then tie the hook on and the float will lift the bait off the sea floor and put it higher up in the water column.

    Actually when I am having a good day that rod can cast a good 100-120M with the pulley rig it is a 14 foot 6 fin nor powerlite with a shimano aerlex 8000 holding 300 meters of 0.35 diameter (8kg) line and the spool can easily fit another 70 meters of it. You could probably get the 600 yards if you loaded your sinker and baited trace into a small diameter spud cannon

    it was decided as soon as it was landed as we had not had smoked fish pie for ages and it went down a treat pity it wasn't a trevally they are way better for smoked fish but kahawai is good too. plus the smoker hadn't been used for three years so it was about time it got fired up.

    Lettuce lettuce and more frigging lettuce ended up in whiritoa threw every bait I had available (pilchards, Anchovies, Kahawai, bonito) at the bastards including mussels off the rocks and still no hookups but plenty of bites ah well will try again another day that sea lettuce must be all coming through from the stormy weather we have been getting lately. Was actally hoping to leave home at 4:30am but the other half decided to hold our departure from home up till 5:15am starting to think that staying at the holiday park over there would be a better idea then I can fish the change of light.
