    Friday next. Take the boat down for some blue cod and trumpeter.

    Just a day trip but will be a long day.
    Just need the tides right.

    We can work around you. I won't be in any hurry.

    I thought the same thing. No doubt they can have yet another venison steak to cheer themselves up though

    I like snapper as much as any good fish. But I rather catch them than eat them, coz I suck at it.

    But if I had a choice of eating fish that I can catch in abundance then I don't really know what you have over us up there.

    Maybe yellowfin? Or dolphin?
    Bluenose and Bass make up for that.
    Do you get gem fish?

    Oh and we have Salmon as well

    Yeah we get Blue nose(best fish in the sea in my view), Bass, Puka, Gem fish etc.
    But I'd keep quiet about eating dolphins if I were you. The shit would really go down if we turned up with one of them draped across the back. But if you do have a spare steak or two I'd love to try it. One of my daughters is working in Japan and has jacked up for me to have a feed of whale when I go up to see her in December.

    Dolphin fish is just another name for mahi mahi no?

    I agree and think Bluenose is one of if not the best eating fish. I actually hate catching them but love eating them.

    Well? We have Salmon, what do you lot have over us? I can't think of anything that is easily targeted. Mahi Mahi and yellowfin wouldn't be easy to get would they?

    I just said you have salmon over us. The thing is what can you catch all year round in good numbers? Sharks?
    Werawhakaui?

    Snapper are awesome fish. Good fighters and take a lure, so no stinky bait fishing for me. While they may not be at the very top of the list for good eating, they are certainly up there. Breaded, fried in butter, kokonda, baked, smoked etc. All good!

    I could catch more kingies if I put my mind to it, but they are not as versatile in the kitchen.

    Blue cod/JD/gurnard are certainly the top tier of inshore species as far as eating goes, but a bit boring to catch.

    A nice snapper from Sunday. My inexperienced fishing buddy was happy!

    I personally have never caught snapper during the winter as I only try to target them in the warmer months but our best diving and fishing on the coast is in June-July imo.
    Caught everything bar salmon, snaps and marlin.... Yup there is marlin in the Haast region.

    Spot on. If I ever order steak at a restaurant I always get funny looks when I say very rare. I want to have to shoot it again when it arrives

    The last steak I had while out was in Masterdon. They mucked up the cooking a bit but it was easily the best steak I remember having paid for anywhere.

    Right up there with what we get off the farm.

    Yeah I knew that. Just thought you coasters might have actually tried dolphin.
    Mahi mahi is over rated in my book. Have had them, Puka and Gem fish on a plate at the same time and would rate them Gemfish, Puka then Mahi in that order.
