Bit of an update for you all out there. TA was the choice for the weekend and around 7 kayakers made there way out from the beach. Everyone caught some nice Snapper, Trevally, Kahawai and there was even a Kingie caught. I spent my morning trying straylining for the first time and began to hook onto some proper autumn snapper. the best being 4.7kg 65cm with a bunch more in the 10 pound range. I put two back over 60 cm and only kept 4 as there was so much meat on each of them. My mate i took out who was over from AUS cleaned me up with a 5.02kg Snapper on the last bait go figure ... :rofl: Also have to report the spinies :devil: are on there way in we caught 4.
