    Netting...the estuary I mostly fish for flounder is too dirty to spear 90% of the time and usual story when its clear and the tides are the right time there is always something else on like work or family commitments......there is another estuary more suited to spearing not far away but same story with time/tide/weather very rarely lineing up, when its good always some other shit you have to do and when you have time its dirty or blowing.

    I've mainly done spearing in the past up in Auckland, but haven't gone after the little flat critters in a while. I've just bought a net so might give that a go. Although not many sheltered spots around Palmy. Have a similar thing with trying to get out in the boat. Weather good, have to work. Got some time off, sure enough can't get over the bar ( as opposed to away from it ) cause the swell and/or wind is up. That is one of the only things I miss about living in Dorkland. At least there you can shoot over to the other coast in about half an hour if the weather is crap on 1 side. Mainly fished off the rocks around Cornwallis, Whatapu, and Titirangi and speared flounder in the estuaries.

    You seem to be suffering sea sickness these days when you didn't use to?.

    Flounder dog on point.

    Ah that's quite common but doesn't help you much.

    Dragged @deer243 out of work for pickup.....got a couple feeds worth and a air display too.

    Out of Delaware this morning with both kids on board.... quite a stiff noreasterly made everything difficult.... swinging round on anckor constant tangles. Fishing was slow to be fair tho the girl got a panni snapper and the boy a double hook up on the southern sail fish that made him work on his soft bait rod.
    Eventually the wind dropped and I bugged out to a new spot and depth.



    Lots of mackeral.... slimy? Certainly the slimyest fin fish I have come across and kahawai.
    I did entertain the idea of liveying one for hopefully a JD but I had nothing rigged and it's a full time job just untangling and rebaiting lines.
    Inbetween sorting balls ups I managed a few flicks of a wee squid lure I had got a while back but never caught anything on...got a few mackys and gurnard and then something with weight.....

    It was just a heavy weight for a start....no head shakes or runs just a solid pull and slow loss of line.
    Could it be a shark? Unlike a shark to take a lure I thought and then after about 30 seconds it realised it was hooked and all hell broke loose!
    Oh shit this is a kingy and I'm on 10 pound and tiny tiny hooks not far from reef with two straylines out two ledger rigs out a burly pot near the bottom and the Ankor rope! Shit just got real.
    Kids wind that in! Wind this in! Wind that in!
    I was lucky it ran for the reef and not the plethora of lines surrounding my boat.
    I gave it a touch more drag as the last of my 10p braid dissapeard for the horizon and I was on the backing mono.
    Thankfully it turned and I managed to get back maybe 40 meters of braid an she was off again! I could see the gold bottom of the spool again by the time it stopped and I could get some line back.
    Kids had their lines up and were working on the two straylines and burly pot while I was working on getting some line back!

    More blistering runs but getting shorter each time and I can see I am starting to win this battle and as long as I don't pull the hooks and she doesn't tangle me on the burly or Ankor lines I might might just land this fish....epic battle for more than 5 min and the boy managed to get the head end in the net and I grabbed the tail and in she come.
    Over a meter length, 18.5p so not a donkey but an epic battle on softbait gear and tiny hooks with all those lines out and close reef.








    A few more kahawai gurnard and panni snapper but basically I was waiting for tide to get back in.
