Post by: ftroop on Sun 15 July, 2007 - 07:44 pm
Well i know I'm getting bad withdrawals, haven't been out for some time now, and with the weather the way it is, it doesn't look like I'm going to get out in the near future either. Any one else finding them selves in this predicament. Howdy Red  :salute:

Hey Ftroop. Yep I woke up this morning to a bloody 30 knot easterly again, I have not had a line in the water since Queens birthday weekend, the weather has just been so foul. Looking forward to longer days and being able to get out after work again.

Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Sun 15 July, 2007 - 10:20 pm
so, whats the biggest fish you've caught?
What species Dab?

Trout = 11 pound.
snapper = about 15 pound.
Kingi = only average.

I've got a few good makos but as yet no billfish, and still to catch my first yellowfin.


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: dab on Sun 15 July, 2007 - 10:45 pm
cool.

first fish i caught was a trout in Taupo when i was a kid. 4 pound i think.
biggest snapper about bigger than pan size.
i caught a yellowfin in Fiji, dunno how heavy but was about 1 metre long. i was the only one to catch tuna that day cus the sharks were hungry.
i never forget the workup. was about quater the size of a rugby field with yellowfin jumping 5ft out! amazing.


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Sun 15 July, 2007 - 10:55 pm
A metre long is a good yellowfin, maybe  30kg?
A workup is one of the most incredible things you can witness in the sea, like you said, tuna etc leaping out of the water, gannets and other birds plummeting out of the sky, just carnage everywhere.
We were trolling out behind Red Mercury last year and we saw a Minke whale up ahead. We decided not to get too close so we headed away to port a bit, then bugger me, another one blew just about 30 metres off our port side, and another one on our starboard side. We just had to keep going ahead, we were s**tting ourselves.
Right in amongst it all,  the birds started working and we were in the middle of this huge meatball of bait and birds....and bloody great whales.
It was one of the most amazing, and nerve wracking sights Ive ever seen.

30kg rings a bell. was some time ago.

wow! that would have been awsome.

not much in th way of fish here at the mo. i think it's too cold?...plenty of seals,dolphins, sharks etc. & paua & mussls, floundr.

i'm going surfing tomorror so might get some mussls.


Title: Re: Fishing

The mako was 302.6, bosses wife caught that on a womens tournament, also got into the 10to1club with it. Boss was and still is keen as on game fishing, ex president of tutukaka boat club/marina, etc. Been out a couple of times with him for marlin, but nothing around at the time. Bloody bugger has now sold his boat and has decided camper vanning is now his forte. I think if i'm ever going to get a marlin, it will have to be on a charter.....

I'm going to get a marlin this season if it kills me! I would love to get one from my little boat and I have a cunning plan too..  :hehehe:

My boss is the same, he just bought a motorhome and is selling his launch so thats a bit of a bummer.

I have met a few of the guys from the Tutukaka club at the weighstation but more familiar with the boat names than the angler names.

Hey man I know this spot only a little downwind from here, a small rectangular area for real struggles, virtually the size of a clubrooms.

Man even the smallest baits just dangled in the waters are snapped at, swallowed hook line and sinker, and talk about fight, ......    the f**kers will go for hours, sometimes days on the tiniest bit of bait!

And the real beauty is, can be fished any weather, any hour, any day!

f**king real good fun! I'll tell ya!

Actually; I think i got a nibbler right now.

Better check the rod and star drag!

Man even the smallest baits just dangled in the waters are snapped at, swallowed hook line and sinker, and talk about fight, ......    the f**kers will go for hours, sometimes days on the tiniest bit of bait!

And the real beauty is, can be fished any weather, any hour, any day!

f**king real good fun! I'll tell ya!

Actually; I think i got a nibbler right now.

Better check the rod and star drag!

Bilbo get ya head out ya ass..you ARE the fish  :laugh:

(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa266/red1471/alexfishing007.jpg)
He got a bit bored at first and needed a feed...


(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa266/red1471/alexfishing008.jpg)

Then he got this one.. He had to take a breather half way up.


(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa266/red1471/alexfishing010.jpg)

We finished up with half a dozen reasonable sized fish and a very tired seven year old, so a good afternoon.

It's been a shocker winter for getting the boat in the water, but when I have the results for table fish at least have been good. The only good thing about being grounded is that it's given me some time to make some more flashers and rigs in prep for the spring/summer

About time you went out Ftroop!!! Starting to think you're making excuses...

Conditions looked mint in comparison to down this way. Some very nice fish there too by the way. What rig/method did you use to boat them (can't remember if you mentioned it or not). I've had the best results down this way with big strip baits of fresh kahawai straylined in about 5-15m of water. The main issue is getting past all the pickers first. I have one really good spot that's a pinnacle rising to 24m from 40m.....but it's the kind of spot you have to be bang on in order to bring in good consistant fish, as the currents vary and are bloody quick


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Mon 20 August, 2007 - 11:58 am
It was blowing about 30 knots SW so was pretty rough coming back, but was reasonably sheltered where I was. I was using whole pilchards on a strayline and casting well back behind the boat, didnt take burley.
I did try using soft plastic as well, but they weren't the flavour of the day for some reason.
One good thing about Whitianga is that there is always somewhere that's fishable in anything but  a North Easterly or Easterly. It's quite interesting how a method and a spot that was very successful one day can be unproductive the next, I have never been able to figure that one out.
Incidentally, the only plastic bait I have had consistent success with is the Nuclear chicken, they seem to outfish every other soft bait ten to one!

The rig I use on a strayline is pretty simple, 8/0 hook and no trace. I usually dont use a sliding keeper hook as these arent IGFA legal and you never know when that big sucker is going to take your bait!


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: armoured on Mon 20 August, 2007 - 01:11 pm
Yeah, that pretty much sums up fishing up that way.....there's generally something to shelter behind. My old stomping grounds were from the Hibiscus Coast to the Whangarei Heads....and then landbased up to the Karikari peninsula. The snapper fishing up that way is better, but I seem to get more of a variety in close (within 15kms of shore) down this way.....plus good trout fishing when the sea's too rough.

As for method...the IGFA is generally out the window, and I use 8-10/0 main with a 6/0 keeper, or 3x4/0 gang hooks. Generally I target terakihi, so most of my rigs are 3/0 recurves on a 2-3 loop ledger. Moki are a good target fish down this way, so unless I know the snapper are running, I'll stick to the hooks that suit small mouth fish. Have played with soft plastics...but not seriously. Will be getting a shimano catana 6-8kg soft plastics rod before summer though so I can give them an honest effort.

It's not hard to fish IGFA rules, but if that's not your scene, then theres no problem. I fish that way because I'm always looking for better fish and get into the competition buzz.
Moki is one species we don't get a lot of up here, I hear they're pretty big down your way too.
I've found that you don't need the specialised gear for soft plastics, as it is so expensive to set up and quite limited in it's uses, but it certainly does help. I have been using 10kg braid on a light boat rod that I already had and have a lot of success, although I am still not convinced that braid is the only way to go, I was getting plenty of fish on mono, but maybe not hooking up as often. I think you lose more fish on braid if you're not careful.
Havent chased Tarakihi for ages, theres a few out here, but generally looking for Snapper and Kingis in the winter.

Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: armoured on Mon 20 August, 2007 - 01:39 pm
I've got braid on my short 12-15kg boat rod, but generally fish 25lb mono (pioneer brand) becauses it's reletively inexpensive, has low line diameter, and good abbrassion resistance. Soft bait use was really hammered last season, and fortunately last seasons stock is reduced.....hence the reason for a specific rod. But I also have a 10-15kg rod with integrated tip that is really flicky on the end with plenty of grunt....so that'll be worth a try before I buy.

Don't really take part in too many competitions, except the inter (boat) club tournaments...in which case most guys fish in a similar fashion....or to put some good food on the table.

Blue moki down this way and yeah.....there's some big-uns too, although I have caught 1 red moki down here which is rare as they're generally found up your way.

fishing tip number #37

if you call fishy fishy fishy,  they shall come


fishing tip #  38

once you see the fishies, just talk to them softly and tell them they will have a better time in your boat, and all that swimming must be exhausting so they may like a rest


fishing tip #39

some fish need reassurance that you won't eat them,  just tell them  that  you want to invite them for dinner for their scintillating conversatio skills....

on sunday night i went for a surf..the tide was super low so i went & grabbed a few mussels of the rocks..well, the water rushed out around by my feet & i looked down & low & behold there was a paua right there!!...lucky huh?


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Tue 27 November, 2007 - 11:55 am
Hell yeah!  Not many legal sized Paua around here. Weather's pretty much shot for fishing for the rest of the week but at least the surfies will be happy.....

coupla weeks back we dragged a net up the river in riverton. went one way & all was well,
then emptied the net of flounder & set it again for a drag back. i was in the shallow end(just up to my waist) and all of a sudden the net stopped & i got dragged backwards!!!

i thought wtf!!..so called to mate & he said 'just heave it' which i did & i felt 'it' break free..

when we got the net out again there was a hole...right through the middle of it about a metre round ...no damage to the lower net...

There must be someone with a fishy story. We've been going out a couple of times a week but nothing to write home about. Tania got a nice kingi last week in the bay but apart from that just the usual pannie Snapper and gurnard.
Hey Ftroop, about time you went fishing dude!

At Whitianga township, most people surfcast from the pipi bed by the wharf, but there are quite a few good rocks etc around the coast. Opito and Otama beaches can be pretty good too.

Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Thu 13 March, 2008 - 10:22 am
Ok, I see  nobody else is going to write a report so here goes..
 :rolleyes:


We went out on Sunday and spent the day on the water. Had a bit of a Snapper fish early on but it was a bit quiet so we decided to go out for a troll. (Sorry no Marlin JJ... Next week hopefully..). We trolled out to the 100 metre line, got a couple of big Kahawai on the way out, then worked our way out to 200 metres.
There was a lot of fish activity on the surface, and we picked up a few Skippies and a nice Albacore, but no bird activity and no baitfish. Followed a container ship outside Red Mercury for a while and watched the dolphins playing around in front of it. (Notice the colour of the water out at 200 metres compared to the photo of the stingray inshore, both pics were taken within a couple of hours of each other.)
We came back into the bay and fished until dark, caught a nice bin of Snapper etc, as well as some undesirables... Stingrays & Eels.... and headed back in the dark around 9 pm. The sea was absolutely flat like glass, even 25 miles out. Was a fantastic day all round. Heaviest Snapper was about 8 pound so nothing to really write home about, but they were still all nice fish.

They used to make them out of Bamboo. I don't really need them, I've game fished from that boat before, you just can't run as many rods, thats all. There's only 2 of us on board anyway so we can't run more than about 5.

Wife confiscates Merc after cockle haul
Wednesday, 24 September 2008



An Auckland housewife has had her husband's $70,000 Mercedes Benz forfeited and ordered to pay almost $1000 in fines yesterday after being caught with more than 14 times the daily limit of cockles.


Miaolan Hu, 30, of One Tree Hill, was convicted in Manukau District Court after earlier pleading guilty to the charge of possessing more than three times the daily limit of cockles.

Hu was stopped by an honorary fishery officer carrying out a routine patrol at Cockle Bay, Howick, in January.

The bags of cockles were found in compartments under the second row of seats of the Mercedes.

They were concealed by small cloth trims that went between the floor and the seat, which had to be unhooked to see them.

The officer counted 1098 cockles in the vehicle.

Allowing for the other gatherers in the vehicle Hu was in possession of 748 cockles, or more than 14 times the daily limit of 50 cockles that a person may possess in the Auckland and Coromandel area.

Auckland district compliance manager Ian Bright said the fines imposed and the forfeiture of the car were a timely reminder to shell fish gatherers to obey the daily limits.

"The offending was aggravated by the fact that there is a sign at the entrance to Cockle Bay outlining the daily limits and the concealment of the excess fish.

"It is this type of greed that has led to a proposal to close Cockle Bay to shellfish harvesting on a seasonal basis," Mr Bright said.

"The result is also a testament to the hard work and dedication of our honorary fishery officer network who give their time freely to ensure the sustainability of our seafood resource."

used to fish around whangaparaoa, one day fishing on the wharf i noticed an asian guy putting any fish he caught in his bucket....so i went to have a look and they were all undersized. i mentioned this to him and he started talking asian like he didnt understand me so i picked up his bucket and chucked all the fish back in the sea.  :lmfao:

Post by: Coach on Wed 24 September, 2008 - 05:00 pm
assuming that mrs Ho, :hehehe: sorry :hehehe: ,Hu was entitled to 50 , she was about 700 over her limit.

Was the same here. We went out  (late) in the morning and by 11 am it had gone to the North and about 25 kts.
We stuck it out for a couple of hours but finishe up coming back inside the bay. I caught one snapper all day about 5 kg. Tania got a couple of nice ones, a barracouta and she lost a snapper at the bot that would have gone over 20 pound.  :bored:
Was a nice day on the water tho.

Barracoutas are a pain in the arse. When they start to hang around they rip through your gear and just cause trouble! They can cut through your line without you even knowing that you have had a bite. They carry worms and are only any good as bait but very good bait for Hapuku.

I have got both brands and they are both good quality. Most people will tell you that Penn is the best. I have never had any issues with Okuma gear but I have only ever used Okuma reels for big stuff.
My favourite is Shimano. If I was going to buy a boat reel for a good all rounder I would buy a Shimano TLD15.

Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Red on Mon 1 December, 2008 - 10:01 am
ok.... here's my abyssmal report!  :lmfao:



Well we couldn't have been better organised if we had tried. Everything was sorted perfectly. The plan was to launch around  6 pm, head out to the Cove (At Great Mercury Island) and spend the night there so we could get an early start and be on the spot at 6 O'clock for lines-in.
I had sold an old Nissan Safari on Trade-me and had planned to use that to launch the boat as the buyer hadn't paid for it yet but at 3 pm he phoned and said he was driving down from Auckland to pick it up and pay for it so we waited. I organised another wagon from a friend to launch the boat and we finally got in the water at around 7 pm. We cruised out into the bay, it was blowing around 25 to 30 knots Southeast so it was quite nasty, but the forecast was good so we carried on, it's only about 18 miles to the Cove.
We got round Devil's point and almost to Opito Bay when the motor coughed and decided to die. We got going again but could only get about 10 knots, I don't know what happened. We were tossing up about turning around when it kicked back into life again and we were away again with a big sea behind us we were sitting on 28 knots almost all the way there.... Almost. about 3 miles from the cove she died again and we nursed it into Home bay about 9 pm. Anchored up and checked what I was able to on the water, had a meal and went to bed.
We got up at 5 am and cooked breakfast, we still planned to win this Competition. What we didn't realise was that we had used over 80 litres of gas getting out to the Cove. (Normally would be about 30l) We ran out  about 5 miles off Opito and put the spare fuel in and decided to fish while we decided what was best to do. We wouldn't have enough to get home.
We caught a few nice fish, the sea had settled and it was a beautiful day. I arranged for a Charter boat to bring some gas out and arranged to pick some more up at Opito bay.
We met up with Star trek and picked up the fuel, then headed over to Opito. I pulled up to the beach and hopped off, Tania backed out again and waited for me to get back. I got back to the beach with the fuel but she couldn't get the motor started so i stripped off and swum out to the boat, brought it back in, leapt off & grabbed the fuel, leapt back on and backed out before the surf caught us. s**t it was funnier than f**k looking back on it.   :hehehe:
We headed back in to Whitianga, it took 3 hours to get from Opito to Whitianga which is normally about a half hour run. All up we had used  over 120 litres of fuel to go from the wharf to Home bay and back, a trip that would normally take about 60 litres, and could only travel at about 3 to 4 knots!   :eek:
We arrived back at the wharf at 4 minutes past 6, the weigh station for the tournament  closed at 6. We had 2 Trevally that would have won first and second place but we were too late and missed out!!   :madashell:
We were so tired that I didn't even bother to clean up or fillet the fish until Sunday morning.

Post by: Red on Mon 1 December, 2008 - 12:43 pm
Yeah it is kinda hard case. if the motor hadn't played up we would have won a section of the Comp. But after getting back we weren't too worried about it, it was just funny that it happened the way it did.

Been a while since I did one so here goes. We had planned on Sunday to go game fishing but it was too rough to get out wide so we decided to have a fish inside the bay.

The first couple of hours we had wind against tide so we couldn't get a decent set  but once the tide changed we started to catch fish. It was hard fishing but we ended up with a few nice Snapper including one of about 12 pound which we caught when we anchored up in amongst a big school of Kahawai, and tossed a strayline into them. We caught enough Kahawai to smoke up and had a great afternoon. We returned a lot of fish and brought home a dozen nice ones.

As per usual my Mrs outfished me.  :eek:

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds delicious. We normally do them on the barbecue, just plain fillets with just a bit of lemon juice. I like it just plain fish without herbs and all that s**t spoiling the taste.

A great weekend, we game fished on Saturday, saw a couple of free jumping Marlin, A sunfish and a couple of whales but never hooked up on anything. The girls got bored with the trolling so we spent the rest of the weekend fishing for Snapper etc. They all caught and weighed nice fish but nothing that was in the money. Tania missed out on one by 10 grams!
At the prize giving on Sunday night there were a number of drawn prizes for fish that weren't caught. Tania's name came up for 1st place tag and release Marlin. She won over $2000.00 in prizes. It was absolutely amazing. A Tica 50W 2 speed reel and bent-butt rod, 24kg. A dvd player, digital camera, make up, vouchers, A Subaru World rally jacket and a whole lot more cool stuff. It was just amazing.

Fishing was a bit hard but in the end we managed to get a bin full for the boys to take back home, Tania again :rolleyes: was the better fisherman with a 12 Pounder and a nice Kingi.

I got a Kingi that was quite big, but had had a shark bite at some stage which had healed but you can see in the pic, his belly isn't what it used to be!
(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa266/red1471/walter017.jpg)
My Sister and her Husband came out and had lunch next to us in their boat.

The following day, we took my mate Bruce out and a young Japanese Student he has staying with him.

Issued at: 4:30 am 15 May 2009 NZST

Valid to: 0:00 am 16 May 2009 NZST

Forecast
Northwest 15 knots rising to 25 knots this morning. Sea becoming rough.

Outlook
Outlook following 3 days: Northwest rising early Sunday to 30 knots, easing late Sunday westerly 15 knots, then rising Monday to 25 knots. Sea rough at times.


The Otago Regional Council is warning people to be aware of rising lake levels as the weekend brings torrential rain and gales to both islands.

Lake Wakatipu is sitting just a metre shy of the first flood warning level, while Lake Wanaka is about two metres below its warning level.

Philip Duncan, Weatherwatch Centre analyst, is predicting heavy rainfall over the next few days, severe gales and snow at higher altitudes as a deep low churns away in the Southern Ocean.

"The problem with this system is the fact that the rain clouds are very big, they're going to hang around for a very long time and they're going to spill over into the headwaters of the lakes and rivers throughout Otago and Canterbury."

The heavy rain could also swell the Clutha and Kawarau Rivers.

Wellington, Masterton, Blenheim and Kaikoura will be the areas the most exposed to severe gales on Saturday and Sunday.

At 61 years of age he should know that it's illegal and that they can confiscate his gear, that's been the case for a lot of years. What he did, even though it was only a small amount is no different to the guys who poach Crays and Pauas and sell them in the pub.
How many other times has he sold "only $10.00 worth of fish"??
If you're over the drink drive limit, you're over, doesn't matter by how much, if you're off side in a Rugby game, you're off side.

no sympathy...  shouldn't have got caught... how on earth did he get caught out?  Should be wiser than that at his age  :hehehe: 

I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was a standing agreement with his mate.... and a few others besides, to suppliment his pension.

Next time the mates should just 'give' him $10.00 occasionally for the sake of friendship and the old codger should just 'give' his mates fish when he has caught extra.   :hehehe:

In New Plymouth District Court this week he admitted selling "recreational catch" and was fined $300.

MFish today told NZPA the judge could have discharged Maine without conviction if the charge was thought to be inappropriate.

Maine could have faced an additional bill of $1400 for storage of his boat but MFish said it would not seek that payment.

The ministry said it could not reveal how or why Maine was targeted as it was an operational matter.

 :p

It reissued a statement reminding people it was illegal for recreational fishers to sell their catch, saying they could face fines up to $250,000 or even imprisonment.

I don't have a fishing story  :embarrassed: but the ex bought my girl a Dora the Explorer fishing rod for her birthday  :rolleyes: now he has to get a licence (the Mataura River - famous apparently....) and it can be pretty dangerous in places  :eek:

My grandfather was a great one for fishing - he used to name all his boats after me  :-D being the first grandchild. They had a batch up in the Bay of Islands and he'd have a great time puttering around the bays catching snapper, gurnard, terakhi and trevalli etc. And taking a screwdriver on walks around the rocks to open the oyster shells ...  :strange:

I used to tie up to bouys and fish in the bay.

oh the good old days  :lol:

my poor sweet gentle miss 7 thought that fishing sounded fun so her dad got her a fishing rod...

I am trying to explain to her about what goes on when you are fishing; and trying to get her ideas out is quite funny really. She thought the fish would just hold onto the hook and then she could release it back into the water, unharmed.

The Regulations are f**ked. The Fish goes from the Boat to the Fishing Company, then often to a Wholesaler, and then on to a retailer. We don't put 100% on the Fish we sell here, it's only about 30%, any more than that and we wouldn't sell any Fish.

Dumb thing is, we can't buy Local fish caught here in this Fishing Town! It all goes to OPC for Export. We have to buy it in from Thames.  :rolleyes:

This is a SST. (Sea Surface Temperature chart.)  It shows the temperature of the water at various depths and Current direction etc. From this we can derive the best places to Troll for Gamefish.

Marlin and Tuna Prefer water temperatures over 20-22 degrees and generally hang around underwater structures, reefs etc, because these features create upwellings, current changes etc, and the Baitfish will be there. (Where the contour lines on the chart are fairly straight and reasonably far apart, there is generally a pretty flat bottom, where the lines curve sharply and they are closer together, it indicated a rough bottom and generally a lot of Reef structures, much the same as a topographical map on land.

It's never an exact Science, the Gamefish will be where you find them, sometimes in water temperatures way outside their normal range, usually where the Bait is.

We generally Fish in water depth of around 100 metres to 1000 metres.


There ya go, a bit of useless information for  you.    :p

ooohhhh. Doesn't matter WHAT size. Fishing is still brain dead activity :twitch:

Ok then, you can come along fishing with me in Auckland, you get to set the fishing rod up (comes in three parts) then you will have to replace my nylon for me on the reel and the nylon has to be the right weight for the size of the fish I expect you to catch, THEN once you have done that I want you to set it up for catching the big fish, you chose the right sized hook, and depending on where we are fishing the weight of the sinker as well.  Then you have to decide what bait is best to use for the fish we are going to catch, bait the hook, Then I want you to cast it out for me and wait patiently. Then once you have hooked a big fish, show me how to haul it in.  Once you have the fish on board I want you to scale it, gut it, and fillet it for me.  I also want it deboned and smoked.  You tell me the best wood chip to use for the type of fish you have caught.

Recon you can do that?  :ok:  :eek:


Title: Re: Fishing
Post by: Butterfly Angel on Wed 21 April, 2010 - 12:09 am
 :jump:  Oh I forgot one of the eyes on my fishing rod needs replacing so you have to do that for me as well. My fishing reel will need to be pulled apart and cleaned once we have gone home for the day so you can show me how to pull it apart, clean it, replace anything in it that needs replacing, then put it back together again ready for tomorrows fishing trip.

 Hmm...Also you have to tell me how to set the drag on the line, we are going to be catching some pretty big fish and I dont want my rod or nylon snapping when the fish runs.

I've had to disqualify Fish for lots of silly little things too..

But the Rules is the Rules.... If you don't want to Fish that way, then don't enter Competitions.


RULES FOR FISHING IN FRESH AND SALT WATER

(Also see Rules for Fly-fishing)

Equipment Regulations

LINE

1. Monofilament, multifilament, and lead core multifilament lines may be used. For line classes, see World Record Requirements.

2. Wire lines are prohibited.


LINE BACKING
Backing not attached to the fishing line is permissible with no restrictions as to size or material.
If the fishing line is attached to the backing, the catch shall be classified under the heavier of the two lines. The backing may not exceed the 130-lb (60-kg) line class and must be of a type of line approved for use in these angling rules.

DOUBLE LINE
The use of a double line is not required. If one is used, it must meet the following specifications:

A double line must consist of the actual line used to catch the fish.
Double lines are measured from the start of the knot, braid, roll or splice making the double to the farthermost end of the knot, splice, snap, swivel or other device used for securing the trace, leader, lure or hook to the double line.
Saltwater species: In all line classes up to and including 20 lb (10 kg), the double line shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters).

The double line on all classes of tackle over 20 lb (10 kg) shall be limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 40 feet (12.19 meters).

Freshwater species: The double line on all classes of tackle shall not exceed 6 feet (1.82 meters). The combined length of the double line and the leader shall not exceed 10 feet (3.04 meters).

D. LEADER

The use of a leader is not required. If one is used, it must meet the following specifications:

The length of the leader is the overall length including any lure, hook arrangement or other device. The leader must be connected to the line with a snap, knot, splice, swivel or other device. Holding devices are prohibited. There are no regulations regarding the material or strength of the leader.

Saltwater species: In all line classes up to and including 20 lb (10 kg), the leader shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters).

The leader on all classes of tackle over 20 lb (10 kg) shall be limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall be limited to 40 feet (12.19 meters).

Freshwater species: The leader on all classes of tackle shall be limited to 6 feet (1.82 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 10 feet (3.04 meters).

E. ROD

Rods must comply with sporting ethics and customs. Considerable latitude is allowed in the choice of a rod, but rods giving the angler an unfair advantage will be disqualified. This rule is intended to eliminate the use of unconventional rods.
The rod tip must be a minimum of 40 inches (101.6 cm) in length. The rod butt cannot exceed 27 inches (68.58 cm) in length. These measurements must be made from a point directly beneath the center of the reel. A curved butt is measured in a straight line. When the rod butt is placed in a gimbal, the measurement from the centre of the reel seat to the pivot point of the gimbal can be no more than 27 inches. (The above measurements do not apply to surf casting rods).
F. REEL

Reels must comply with sporting ethics and customs.
Power driven reels of any kind are prohibited. This includes motor, hydraulic, or electrically driven reels, and any device, which gives the angler an unfair advantage.
Ratchet handle reels are prohibited.
Reels designed to be cranked with both hands at the same time are prohibited.
 

G. HOOKS FOR BAIT FISHING

For live or dead bait fishing no more than two single hooks may be used. Both must be firmly imbedded in or securely attached to the bait. The eyes of the hooks must be no less than a hook’s length (the length of the largest hook used) apart and no more than 18 inches (45.72 cm) apart. The only exception is that the point of one hook may be passed through the eye of the other hook.
The use of a dangling or swinging hook is prohibited. Double or treble hooks are prohibited.
A two-hook rig for bottom fishing is acceptable if it consists of two single hooks on separate leaders or drops. Both hooks must be imbedded in the respective baits and separated sufficiently so that a fish caught on one hook cannot be foul-hooked by the other.
A photograph or sketch of the hook arrangement must accompany all record applications made for fish caught on two-hook tackle.
H. HOOKS AND LURES

When using an artificial lure with a skirt or trailing material, no more than two single hooks may be attached to the line, leader, or trace. The hooks need not be attached separately. The eyes of the hooks must be no less than an overall hook’s length (the overall length of the largest hook used) apart and no more than 12 inches (30.48 cm) apart. The only exception is that the point of one hook may be passed through the eye of the other hook. The trailing hook may not extend more than a hook’s length beyond the skirt of the lure. A photograph or sketch showing the hook arrangement must accompany a record application.
Gang hooks are permitted when attached to plugs and other artificial lures that are specifically designed for this use. Gang hooks must be free swinging and shall be limited to a maximum of three hooks (single, double, or treble, or a combination of any three). Baits may not be used with gang hooks. A photograph or sketch of the plug or lure must be submitted with record applications.
I. OTHER EQUIPMENT

Fighting chairs may not have any mechanically propelled devices, that aid the angler in fighting a fish.
Gimbals must be free swinging, which includes gimbals that swing in a vertical plane only. Any gimbal that allows the angler to reduce strain or to rest while fighting the fish is prohibited.
Gaffs and nets used to boat or land a fish must not exceed 8 feet (2.44 meters) in overall length. In using a flying or detachable gaff the rope may not exceed 30 feet (9.14 meters). The gaff rope must be measured from the point where it is secured to the detachable head to the other end. Only the effective length will be considered. If a fixed head gaff is used, the same limitations shall apply and the gaff rope shall be measured from the same location on the gaff hook. Only a single hook is permitted on any gaff. Choke ropes must not exceed 30 ft (9.14 meters) including the wire or chain on one end.Harpoon or lance attachments are prohibited. Tail ropes are limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). (Once the catch is along side and under control and the crew are unable to lift the fish on board, an anchor rope or block and tackle may be attached to the tail or gaff rope to bring the catch on board as long as the crew can verify it was not used in the fight of the fish). (When fishing from a bridge, pier or other high platform or structure, this length limitation does not apply).
Entangling devices, either with or without a hook, are prohibited and may not be used for any purpose including baiting, hooking, fighting or landing the fish.
Outriggers, downriggers, spreader bars and kites are permitted to be used provided that the actual fishing line is attached to the snap or other release device, either directly or with some other material. The leader or double line may not be connected to the release mechanism either directly or with the use of a connecting device. Spreader bars are also acceptable when used strictly as a teaser.
Daisy chains, birds, floats and similar devices may only be used if they do not unfairly hamper or inhibit the normal swimming or fighting ability of the fish, thereby giving the angler or crew an unfair advantage in fighting, landing or boating the fish.
A safety line may be attached to the rod provided that it does not in any way assist the angler in fighting the fish.
ANGLING REGULATIONS

From the time that a fish strikes or takes a bait or lure, the angler must hook, fight, and land or boat the fish without the aid of any other person, except as provided in these regulations.
If a rod holder is used and a fish strikes or takes the bait or lure, the angler must remove the rod from the holder as quickly as possible. The intent of this rule is that the angler shall strike and hook the fish with the rod in hand.
In the event of a multiple strike on separate lines being fished by a single angler, only the first fish fought by the angler will be considered for a world record.
If a double line is used, the intent of the regulations is that the fish will be fought on the single line most of the time that it takes to land the fish.
A harness may be attached to the reel or rod, but not to the fighting chair. The harness may be replaced or adjusted by a person other than the angler.
Use of a rod belt or waist gimbal is permitted.
When angling from a boat, once the leader is brought within the grasp of the mate, or the end of the leader is wound to the rod tip, more than one person is permitted to hold the leader.
One or more gaffers may be used in addition to persons holding the leader. The gaff handle must be in hand when the fish is gaffed.
The angling and equipment regulations shall apply until the fish is weighed.
In the event of an angler wishing to re-use a successful lure on the same day, the leader must be cut on a 45 degree angle at the swivel top or loop end. Both pieces together with the re-rigged lure must be presented to the weighmaster or judge that day.
Any catch will not be deemed to be complete until after the catch is weighed. In the event of a fish being tagged, the catch will be deemed complete when the tag is inserted in the fish.
When tagging a fish, the tag pole must be held at all times.
The following acts will disqualify a catch:

Failure to comply with equipment or angling regulations.
The act of persons other than the angler in touching any part of the rod, reel, or line (including the double line) either bodily or with any device, from the time a fish strikes or takes the bait or lure, until the fish is either landed or released, or in giving any aid other than that allowed in the rules and regulations. If an obstacle to the passage of the line through the rod guides has to be removed from the line, then the obstacle (whether chum, floatline, rubber band, or other material) shall be held and cut free. Under no circumstances should the line be held or touched by anyone other than the angler during this process.
Returning the rod to the rod holder, resting the rod in a rod holder, on the gunwale of the boat, or any other object while playing the fish. The rod being passed to the angler after the fish has taken the bait or lure
Handlining or using a handline or rope attached in any manner to the angler’s line or leader for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.
Shooting, harpooning, or lancing any fish (including sharks and halibuts) at any stage of the catch.
Chumming with or using as bait the flesh, blood, skin or any part of mammals other than hair or pork rind used in lures designed for trolling or casting.
Using a boat or device to beach or drive a fish into shallow water in order to deprive the fish of its normal ability to swim.
Changing the rod or reel while the fish is being played.
Splicing, removing, or adding to the line while the fish is being played.
Intentionally foul-hooking a fish.
Catching a fish in a manner that the double line never leaves the rod tip.
Using a size or kind of bait that is illegal to possess.
Attaching the angler’s line or leader to part of a boat or other object for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.
If a fish escapes before gaffing, or netting, and is recaptured by any method other than as outlined in the angling rules.
When live baiting and the deckhand or any other person other than the angler is holding the rod when the fish takes the bait.
If a fish escapes before gaffing, netting, tagging, or deliberately releasing it, it will be considered a free swimming fish and will not be regarded as a catch.
That any marlin taken out of the water to be Tagged and released will be disqualified.
If the tag pole is used in a manner of a
Harpoon, when tagging a fish or when it leaves the hand.

The following situations will disqualify a catch:

When a rod breaks (while the fish is being played) in a manner that reduces the length of the tip below minimum dimensions or severely impairs its angling characteristics.
Mutilation to the fish, prior to landing or boating the catch, caused by sharks, other fish, mammals, or propellers that remove or penetrate the flesh. (Injuries caused by leader or line, scratches, old healed scars or regeneration deformities are not considered to be disqualifying injuries). Any mutilation on the fish must be shown in a photograph and fully explained in a separate report accompanying the record application.
When a fish is hooked or entangled on more than one line.

The bro caught 2 rainbow trout...was grinning like a cheshire cat :-D

I think theres been an algae bloom up the East Coast - would usually head out to Maketu for kiamoana but not safe at the moment, I wonder if that has affected the snapper. Otherwise some Aholes dumping off illegal fish maybe.

Oysters btw get the oysters! They come from the Bay of Islands.

Tuna Math confuses me.

A can of tuna is about $2.90 for 185grams

Which is $15.67 / Kg

so 415Kg at that price would be $6503.05

so how do they make money?   :thinking:

I know the Japs pay heaps for it as well.

I was staying in Newlands when I was 14 or 15, so was about 1989-1990, would have been May or August holidays and me and my friend went down to go fishing in the harbour just below Newlands and some orca swam past, was funny you heard the swearing fisherman first trying to get their lines in before you saw them


Title: Re: Fishing

True, I've never really taken much notice, and we spent most of our time fishing up north so perhaps me Pappy wasn't interested either.

Over the years though there hasn't been a great deal of articles regarding orca visitors to the harbour that I can think of.

Not at all. We have had Blues here all my life, we call them gumboots cos that's what they fight like.  :hehehe: They're a pain in the arse, cos once they arrive, they will eat every fish you catch off your line and you can't get rid of the f**kers.

Maybe not such a cool find for Californians after all  :thinking:


"Finding a giant oarfish washed up on the beach is a rare occurrence, since the fish is a deepwater species that's rarely seen at all. So when a second oarfish was found just five days later, the rumor mill kicked into high gear.

An 18-foot-long (5.5 meters) oarfish carcass discovered on Oct. 13 was considered a once-in-a-lifetime event for beachgoers on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California. But that event was followed five days later by a second oarfish, measuring 14 feet (4.3 m), found on a beach in San Diego County.

Now, some are claiming that oarfish washing ashore is a sign that an earthquake will soon follow. Shortly before the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, about 20 oarfish stranded themselves on beaches in the area, Mark Benfield, a researcher at Louisiana State University, told LiveScience in an earlier interview. (Video - ROV Captures Bizarre Deep-Sea Oarfish)

The oarfish is known in Japan as ryugu no tsukai or "messenger from the sea god's palace," according to the Japan Times. Dozens of the deep-sea denizens were discovered by Japanese fishermen around the time a powerful 8.8-magnitude earthquake struck Chile in March 2010.

Kiyoshi Wadatsumi, a specialist in ecological seismology, told the Japan Times, "Deep-sea fish living near the sea bottom are more sensitive to the movements of active faults than those near the surface of the sea.""

Northland man lands giant tuna with his bare hands

Beach buggy enthusiast Aaron Cossill dragged a giant tuna to shore with nothing more than his bare hands and a hunting knife.

He and his son were driving along Ripiro Beach at  Dargaville in Northland on Saturday when they saw what looked like a dolphin flapping in the breakers.

"It's tail  was thrashing from side to side as it was being hit by a couple of big waves," he says. "I ran over and saw it was a huge tuna."

I'm not sure I do, they're pretty powerful fish and in waste deep water I'd expect him to come off second best against that, it was probably washed up on the beach :thinking:

I reckon it must have been sick or injured. They are pelagic and would normally be unlikely to venture that close to the coast unless the continental shelf was close to the shore.  :idea:

Smoked Mullet was one of our most popular ones when I was working in Whitianga, sometimes it was so fat, the fat would drip off it and mess up the bottom of the smoker. I used to smoke the roe as well, big fat pieces of it.

crap, same thing happened to my car this morning, I don't think the head gasket went though as I was right beside the garage I take my car too when it overheated so I pulled in and have them taking a look at it today, he recons it's the thermostat jammed because the bottom pipe was cold and the top pipe scolding hot
