took an army of softies out.. gulp and zman... gulp  in the grey grub  has always been my go to, didnt fail me this time either... tried the gulp  white glow one only to be bitten in half on one bite.... the 3"minnows did ok for a few but tail get bitten off also... for the zman coconut ice 4" streaks i think they are.. long curly tails on them.. this got the second biggest fish on the day 50cm and in the motor oil same result 56cm snaps... bleeding banana did get any.. so no pattern in colours to follow... my mate also caught on the SLAM brand in the take off like the nook chook.  Smiley

We were out on the charter vessel Joint Venture from Te Kouma yesterday evening, got plenty of snapper biggest was 6 kgs, still lots of undersized fish but more than enough for a feed. We were fishing around the farms off Wilsons bay.

Thanks - it was mainly the little kingi I was wondering about. One on cut bait isn't all that unusual, but I thought that two was worth asking about.
