Great pinky season

Probably been one of the better snapper seasons ive had, plenty of fish and absolutely nailing plastics since ive been home the last 2 weeks. Plenty of big fish around, mostly 85-87cms, also did 3 trips in a row where we landed a 90cm+ fish each trip. Enjoy the pics fellas.

First trip this r&r

Headed out yesterday with my brother for one last hit at it before going to work, fish were on the chew big time after Saturdays blow. 10 fish for the session all on plastics, all releasewd, back at the ramp by 9am. Dropped a fish on stickbait when the trebbled opened up which was a bummer as thats been a goal this year, pink on stickbait. Will be back home just before the ban to give it another go.

This was a brand new jighead out the box before the session, accounted for 8 fish in the boat and a few more dropped, didnt have to replace the plastic once, Zman 7in Streakz with a Halco octo-skirt sweetener.

 Quality fish and pics as usual. Is that one of those savage gear prawns? And a pink on a stick bait sounds like an awsome target, cant wait to see a pic of that.

Great report and pics as always

Mon, 2017-09-25 14:41

It comes as no surprise that snapper contain sea urchin spikes.  Crushed up sea urchins or kina as it is known by in NZ has long been regarded as one of the best berleys to attract snapper.  Being easily accessible for spear fisherman I have read claims of fish being attracted from considerable distances.  You don't hear much about it over here.  Come in Shore Catch 'Sea Urchin Burley'.
