Lots of small snapper until dark then the big boys/girls came out to play. Biggest two around 55 centimetres biggest off yak yet awesome nights fishing. Lost a few that were probably around similar size

Anyone catching?

Re: Pilchards versus Anchovies

Use anchovies all the time. I think they are a great bait. Caught a few snapper on them last night.

Re: Cable Bay of recent

No set day. I'll have to earn some brownie points with the misses. Possibly one aft/evening this next week or weekend. I'll flick you a message on here and see if you are keen when I get the chance.

Re: Cable Bay of recent

Might start concentrating more on cable bay and get in to that deeper water see if I can get stuck in to some bigger fish.

Re: Cable Bay of recent

Hi ranson.
I was pretty close in. In around 4 mtr of water. Just got to find a bit of structure/feature out there.
Where do you launch to fish the back beach at tahunanui? Any tips for fishing there?
Cheers.

Re: Kina or ruby?

Looks like you did better than me by a long way. I just dropped burly down to bottom and threw some lumps of squid out with very little weight. Could I do anything different next time?

Re: Anchor rope

Yeah I've seen on you tube vids people using really thin stuff. What's the best material that you find doesn't tangle as much with a good lifetime and strength?
