    Great fishing! Just looking at buying a lighter set. That guy in orange was murdering his gear leaving it in saltwater all the time.

    the guy should see the man is hooked up and pull his line out of respect it shows self control and is the true nature of fishing.
    There is a lot more water than time in the day

    To clarify, It was a 15g Gillies Pilchard lure. The large size 2/0 single hook, swivel and two split rings added 3g to give a total weight of 18g.

    Hi, I'm sure it was an 18g Gillies Pilchard from their Saltwater Pro Series.

    Rivermouth might be the best spot but we catch kahawai here on wellington wharves and just about any land-based fishing
