Seriously humbled by our client and son who entered the NZ Lure Masters contest today. Totally blind and did absolutely everything by himself, reels to rods, tying lures on and casting downwind. Absolute legend!!
Fishing slightly slow, but did well considering the bite and only one person fishing for majority of the day.

A promising forecast for the bottom end of Waiheke on Friday was quickly dismissed as a strong Sou-westerly breeze came up Firth of Thames. I was forced to change my plans from a out wide trip to prospecting the shallows around Ponui Island. I've never really done any shallow water softbaiting in this area so it was worth a try while the weather limited my options. The Catch Fishing Livies softbaits were cast into the shallows, sometimes as shallow as 2m which is where all the legal sized fish seemed to be, feeding in the murky water stirred up by the waves crashing on the beach. I ran the Stinger jigheads with the assist hook attached which surprisingly caught 75% of the fish on the assist hook today. One by one I filled the Manta marine stainless fish bin with pannies from 350mm to 450mm and packed up at lunch time for a bash home across the Tamaki Straight heading into the wind, no match for the mighty Yamaha Jetsports Waverunner! A cheap trip out and a fun way to fish in shallow water, I recommend giving it a try if you haven't before. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Espresso, I have several of these Squidwings. But only had good luck with the smaller versions drifting through Kingfish, with a slow lift and retrieving line on the down stroke.
Have you a link on how to fish the large 500-750 Squidwings for puka/bluenose?
What did it weigh?
Danico Haarhoff same as your jig
Keiren Errington may need to try these
Ryan Weber you got one of those in you're bag of tricks?
Nar I dont m8 but they work real well have caught big bass and puka on them with m8s
