Had a cheeky stop in the mussel farm last week. We were tied off and the barge got closer and closer. We couldn't get the fish to take anything so I broke out the Salt fly gear. Took 6 beautiful Trevs for food, put three back and got two absolute hidings. This is the hardest structure I have fished with Salt Fly and it was no finnese job stopping them, but I had smiles for miles anyway.

When you own your own tackle store and you're also a self confessed tackle rat, some days are like Christmas. Today was one of those days. I would like to warmly welcome Nomad Design Tackle NZ to The walls of OTD. Im stoked to have a solid range of their lures lining the top water wall in store. A big thanks to @ndtacklenz for coming onboard. OX #nomadlures #topwateraddiction #kingfish #catchandrelease #makemystringsing #saltwatermayhem #fishingmad #fishinglife #waihekeisland #islandlife

Hooked two sweet little kingis landbased on stickbaits today. I landed the small one on a Roughtrail Aramosa but had hook failure on a horse on another lure.The lure was intended for slightly smaller fish. It was so shallow and rocky and both fish hit inside the kelp line. They were epic fights. Hope I can hit it again tomorrow. So stoked. #fishing #fishingmad #fishinglife #islandlife #roughtrail #landbasedfishing #stickbait #kingfish #catchandrelease #haku #shallowasitgets #Daiwa #saltistltd #moocherhunters

When your flash little tackle store is still just a little bit rural lol. #fishing #fishingmad #fishinglife #islandlife #tractor #shoppingcarts #fishingonwaiheke

Whole snapper chilli/lime seasoned, floured and crisped in hot oil, basted with a sauce (soy/garlic/sesame oil/shin mirin/rice wine vinigar/lemon grass/fish sauce) and grilled, topped with melted butter, spring onion and seeded tomatoes. My girls loved it..... #foodie #snapper #fishchef #fishingmad #boyswhocook #waihekelife #tastyfood #tasty

Were off out wide for an eyeball on the sky mission... woop wooop

Last Wednesday was another great fishing day. The wind was up around 20kts so we stayed close to the Island and used softbaits. We had a great catch of Snapper taking only a few for my mate Gerry. I the last half an hour Gerry nailed this 67cm Snapper and released it after a quick pic. We found the secret was darker coloured Gulp softbaits on light jig heads with very small movements. This method gave us a lot less bottom time but a great conversion rate for the takes we got. Tight lines out there.

Lemon and corriander cured Kingfish on a raw brocolli salad with a side of baked shoestring fries for balance and fresh chilli for zing...... 😊😆😈 #foodie#rawfish#sushi#whatsfordinner#kingfish#ox#waihekeisland#islandlife#fishingmad#fishinglife#

Took the new Daiwa Emeraldas squid jigs out for a flick tonight. Only saw one Broady the whole time but the second it saw the Emeraldas it charged in and snatched it. @daiwanz I love your new jigs. Stoked. #Egisquid#squidfishing#nightlifewaiheke#fishingmad#calamari#saltpeppersquid#Daiwalove#lovinlife
