King­fish put up a strug­gle

Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

It was yet an­other spec­tac­u­lar week­end in beau­ti­ful Auck­land! In fact the whole week has been amaz­ing for weather and fish­ing alike.

There are still huge num­bers of king­fish ev­ery­where, so am­a­teur and ex­pe­ri­enced fishos have been hav­ing a blast land­ing these hard-fight­ing fish.

The best way to hook up has been with a live bait or even a sink­ing pop­per.

If you can­not get hold of a livey, make sure you have some piper bait on board. You won’t re­gret it.

You needn’t go far for this fish­ing ac­tion ei­ther, with one an­gler land­ing an 18-kilo­gram kingy at Browns Is­land!

Snap­per fish­ing has been a bit tougher with plenty of an­glers notic­ing a lot of small snap­per around.

The best area for them seems to be at the bot­tom end of Wai­heke Is­land, or try go­ing out to the Noises with a nice stray­line rig.

The top baits are pilchard, piper and mack­erel. So, un­til next week, Tight Lines!
