    @screamO

    I have spent the whole last week in marahau launching water taxis and i can tell you the place is still extremely busy as is kaiteri. There are a shit load of private boats on the water every day !!

    If I was you, i'd wait until next week as traditionally this is the last of the really busy weeks

    On the fishing front....Dad has taken his Chch mates out twice in the last week (30+m) They have had good snapper catches both times but none of them have been rod caught. All fish have come off the longline !!

    There are heaps of kingis about, on two occasions in the last week I have seen them right up next to the beach smashing bait fish. The second time they were so shallow i could have driven the tractor right thru them!! The sort of thing you only see when you don't have a rod

    Also the water is warm enough for tuna and although it is early days if you are out wide keep your eyes out for them as someone has to be the fist to find some

    Have heard in Goldenbay off the mussel farms the kingfish are thick. Mate fishing with just bait caught 3 kingfish in the space of a hour, smallest 82cm, biggest 104cm.

    Didnt help much that my tackle box marked "kingfish" was left at home
    Topwater fishing with no gear lol....anyway will put it down to experience....still determined to get a topwater king from shore, may have to start out from the boat at the spat farms to break the jinx and Christen the rod.....so far the only fish it has caught is a bloody big blue shark!

    Good stuff you fellas, sure was a beautiful sunrise this morning. Looks like i was just a few km up the coast from you (we camped at watering cove last night)

    I couldn't manage to catch anything this morning either but did get a couple of small brim last night from the beach with the surf caster

    Well thats better than yesterday, all we saw walking the dogs was the same family of as the week before slaughtering the shellfish beds out at Delaware and playing "me not understand when we asked if they knew the limit was 50 each" Would be nice to see a "Plain Clothes Fisheries Officer" out there at low tide in the weekends as its becoming more common than not. Its not the boat guys they really need to target!! Once a bucket / bag is full one of the kids gets sent back to the car while they carry on filling the others.

    Hey Mikee it is 150 per person for cockles and tuatua .....but yes I feel your pain.... with no size limit or even catch limit of some species everything gets stripped bare......our fishing rules and policeing of those rules have not kept pace with globalization and immigration.....most other cultures keep EVERYTHING they catch or can gather big or small.

    That needs to change and very soon or it will be too late if it is not already.d
