    Heading to the Bay of Many Coves tomorrow.

    I dont know much about the snapper on that side but have been told it can fish quite well. Have fished there heaps but have never hooked a snapper. To be fair I have never targeted one.

    Seen a couple years ago when diving for scollys in the wee cove we are staying but they never hung around and were off a rocky point hanging around the foul.

    Anyone have any knowledge on the area or if there is even any snaps around on that side of the sounds at the moment.

    Only being allowed 2 blue cod each has me keen to try for something different.

    I dont know the area but my advice is burly....lots and lots of burly and a variety of baits.
    Burly a few meters up off the bottom in whatever depth.

    I agree but have no idea. Was told fishing from shore was best.

    Met fella on the ferry a few months ago that runs a local barge.

    His photos of snapper were awesome and he seemed to thing he could catch them easier than cod on that side.
    I lost his card but remember where he parked the barge.
    I might look him up if I have any time to spare

    My old man remembers the local owner of the bnb that was in the same bay as our batch used to get them off his jetty - bay of many coves, it was the bay before aratawa, but I have literally fished there since I could walk and never seen one - never target them though just the old blue cod

    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

    You and I have had a conversation about the snaps up there before. You know who I am staying with and he is the same. Had a batch there for years and never heard of snaps being caught there.

    Was talking to a mate today that has caught heaps in the Bay of Many Coves.
    Technique is no different to anywhere else but they always fished from shore so I will take some of his advice and give it a go.

    I am snapper repellent so don't like my chances.
    I have to dive a few moorings so will have a look where I seen them before but will try to dive on the change of light.

    LOL!!! Forgot about that.

    Haven't had a good run on them this year either. Been very quiet on the rig for me.
    My boy has had a few tho.

    You been out?
    Actually heard of a few snapper caught lately at Rossi beach but could be just rumour.

    I was talking to the shrimp boat captain on the weekend. He says they got in to some Albies the other day north of Haast.

    Got me keen on going for a look in a few weeks.

    Hey @R93 the commercial boys have been weighing in heaps of albies up here at talleys. Word is most of them are coming from the w.coast, average weight is down with fish of 2.5kg but there has been lots caught. So once you are back from slaying massive snaps off the rocks it'd b well worth ya while getting out there id say.
    Good luck.

    Tight lines on both fronts !!
