    Electric reels are the answer from that deep. Hauled up some ling from 4-500 odd metres. Electric reel made it very easy.

    Some deer even.

    Mate caught a rather large Gurnard, and we had heaps of Jock Stewarts, some big blue cod, a Bluenose and spotty dogs, kahawai and a huge greyboy.
    Was enjoying the day too much to take many pics. And they would likely give my spots away.
    Got all the way to the Cascade river and back to Jacksons on one 20l caddy with heaps of running around I between.

    Did you eat the greyboy? I think I caught one last time I was out but wasn't too sure so I threw it back in, it was a big one as well.
    When hunting think safety first

    Big grey boys eat well.....just treat em like any shark and head and gut/tail immediately and get on ice till you can fillet and steak(if big)

    No we let it go. They are good eating but I have only tried smaller ones.
    Rig are plentiful here so greyboys dont usually find their way to my plate.

    Well myself and a forum member went bait soaking today, weather was what the weather was...but the fishing was average out of okiwi up to Delaware where the snapper were last week apperntly...red cod, horse kawahai and spikies...down the coast tried a variety of depths and spots.

    Water temp well up finally got a legal blue cod then the forum member chucked ( dropped it over the side) it back whilst measuring it. Eat tucker had a brew or three of tea, grabbed a feed of mussels. Home

    Never seen a green penguin before but today we shared some time with one.. interesting wee creatures burbing and farting then after a bit the lose concionius in the front of your boat, though they do respond to "mate you have a fish on with enthusiasm" ...

    Cheers to the forum member for a great day out and my daughter for her paitence! A hard days fishing but a fantastic memory all the same.

    The gunnels is a bloody stupid place to put your fish measuring device anyway

    Thanks for yet another great day out, despite all the above

    I did try to convince the skipper that I was merely trying to ensure that he would have the chance to recatch it when it HUGE

    Well I finally got @deer243 out for a fish this morning.
    Conditions were fantastic but the fishing was tough.



    Lots of baby grey boys and not much else at the prime time of day and tide prompted a change of depth, finally a nice fat snapper on the strayline and a big gurnard boated but then we run out of tide and the shit fish turned up.

    Saved by the longline we come in to escape the heat with 6 fat snaps(bloody lost one at the boat it snapped the trace ) and a few gurnard.

    Coming in "the cut"

    It was the first one and it snapped it while I was getting the net shoulda just lifted it in.....naturally it was the biggest one by quite a margin
    They were very fresh and I just cocked up really, I left it about 2-3 foot down while I got the net which was ready and took 2 seconds but that gave it time to turn and power down, I should have wound it right to the surface so it had no traction....oh well.

    Had the easiest fishing today. Dropped off mates dive bottle this afternoon. Had a cup of tea while I waited for him to get home, was handed 2 snapper fresh off the boat and drove home
    I have the tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
