Deep-water
Targeting Hapuka, bluenose, bass, gemfish and other deep water species traditionally means plunging a big dropper rig loaded, with various lumps of squid or bait fillets, into anywhere from 100 to 500 metres attempting to hit sign identified on the trusty sounder. More often than not these days, with an electric reel (see powered winch) of some sort. It’s a reasonably effective way to fish, with good results common to those that know what they are doing.

Gear
One of the most underrated, and under-utilised lures available to fishermen really does come in a small package.

Cooking
Hapuka is an amazing table fish, but it is a big flakey lump of flesh that can easily be over cooked and become rather tough if you don't get it right.

Techniques
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.
