Barbless hooks are better!
You’ll hook more fish, and enjoy a few other benefits to boot. How so you say? Believe it or not, barbless hooks are a better option in many ways for almost every type of rod and reel sport fishing.
Shimano OCEA Sardine Waver slow jigs
Here’s a red hot looking jig freshly out from the team at Shimano Fishing. At NZFW we love our slow pitch jigging, and these new releases from Shimano promise to be the real deal. As soon as we have a good field test under the belt we will be reporting back, but if looks could kill, these lures will be pure magic.
Soft bait jig head shootout
Howling reels and big smiles are two things that soft bait fishermen get to enjoy on a regular basis. Soft baiting was one of the first real game changing lure technique to revolutionise fishing in New Zealand, particularly if you are chasing snapper. The advent of braid line, and powerful yet comparatively small thread line spinning reels, made this method of fishing not only great fun, but deadly in pretty much any water up top 40 metres. Fished from kayaks or small boats right in close, these lures have proven effective on just about everything from john dory, kingfish, cod, kahawai, to absolutely monster snapper. From a larger boat they are also very easy to fish the highly productive 15 – 40 metre water band.
