    Got a kingfish at 73cm,just under legal and four gurnard, one greyboy, couple of barracouta, couple of big mackrel. Lost 3 other snapper as well as getting busted off on two other fish.
    The setline had one snapper, 5 gurnard, couple big kawhawai and some spiky dogfish.
    Another 2 boats fishing the 30m mark got 17 snapper on a setline , and one got 8, with a couple 10lbers on rods
    Good on ya @deer243

    She's a bloody healthy fishery all right. We are super lucky there.

    I really wish they would lower the longline limit per boat from 2 down to 1 tho. We just dont need two!!

    Long may it continue ah

No snapper on hook line no spikes either so pretty much a draw, handful of cod then the heat turned on so we headed home.
    Daughter came down so out this morning slayed another feed of cod a few carrots from the hook line (cheers VC) for your knowledge. Head in clean up pack up home. Attachment 100993

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Yeah I'm just jealous. They were not around when I caught most of my Bluenose and as you probably know winding them up from 400m gets old pretty fast

    There is a lot of Top of the South fishing knowledge floating around this thread , so can I pick everyones brains for a minute .
    I’m going to treat myself to a new Reel setup this Christmas and will be wanting to purchase it from somewhere in Nelson .
    What Reel/line combo would you guys reccomend to get for boat fishing in the Marlborough Sounds for general use , chasing Cod / Snapper / Gurnard etc .
    Budget of $400 max $300 would be better .
    Also reccomendations of where to buy from in Nelson area ?
