    if i was going to take the missis snapper fishing..... okiwi or polaris??? decemeber?

    ive only caught a couple of snapper before in polaris
    i want to take the missis for a couple days fishing in december
    will it be too early for snapper?
    Polaris sound or okiwi bay?
    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

    Should be everywhere round Tasman bay December.
    Okiwi got scallops and maybe kings off the islands if your lucky
    Take a longline.
    dunno why but some days are good on the line and Shit on rods and others the opposite.

    While I wont call them Snapper it looks like they have turned up in tasman bay, and hour and a halfs fishing while kids at school.

    Hey Smiddy, (are you Josh James side kick?) any way Pelorus sound is the place to be for Snapper. Drop your boat in at Havelock and head round to the Pelorus.
    Just out of Havelock is the Keneperu sound (which is off the lower Pelorus), good Snapper in there as well and a bit more sheltered.

    Wow

    If you could post up a few more pics that would be great , then I might be able triangulate your position
    Years ago we just used to fish a couple of hundred yards of Kina beach on the incoming tide . The action was always hard and fast as the schooling Pan sized beauties hit the baits for 5 minutes and then were gone .

    Round the mussel bouys in Squally cove , bit of current , AND , buy whole , raw , frozen prawns , break the tail off for yerself and keep the head end for the snapper and strayline it in the current ......change of light on an incoming tide has worked best for me . A smallish livie on a ledger rig has scored me a few john dory's too good luck . My Mrs catches all the weird shit and then doesn't want to be in the same boat as it , specially eels , real funny coz she aint big on swimming either
    veitnamcam, Smiddy and stingray like this.
