Re: Queens Birthday Weekend

Avoid high tide at Middleton bay it can get a bit tricky at high on the ramp there with a lot of water moving around.

Re: Straylining (How do you personally do it?)

Watch some early Matt Watson shows, he is good at showing how to strayline. Usually two hooks and a small running ball sinker, half hitch at the end of the bait and let the sinker sit back on that.

Re: John Dory Fishing ~ How do you rig a live bait?

Circle hooks and put the hook through the back of the mack at a 45 degree angle like the big angry fish guys do for kingfish. Should hook in the jaw then just keep steady pressure on. Keep trying different ways but it looks like most are using circles now

Re: taranaki classic

Looking like the conditions will be good for the comp. There has been a bit of rain so the water is dirty in close but there is only a small swell and forecast is for light winds both days so should be some nice flat water. :y:
