Kingfish on livebaits - Moocher Hunters NZ

So, once more the boys have the island in site and dreams of big fish and some laughs with good mates are at the forefront of their minds.

After being locked up at home, unable to go camping and fishing for some 5 weeks! The boys have there freedom back once more. The forecast says rain, but after being stuck on dry land for weeks on end, going fishing in the rain sounds like a lot of fun. Nato’s tent on the boat was designed to make fishing and camping on the boat in the rain possible and enjoyable, the Tent is about to be put to that very test. The boys plan to make the most of the terrible forecast in some sheltered waters. As always, a tonne of fun was had trying to catch some fish to eat despite the rain and there are big smiles all round.

Seeing the value of marine reserves

Did you know that a big 70cm snapper can produce the same amount of eggs as 36 legal sized 30cm fish? Marine reserves are more and more becoming the last option we have to preserve certain fish stocks, given that limits put on commercial and recreational fishing are slow to change due to debatable political and economic reasons. For one, it lends sense to the action of putting the big fish back into the breeding system at least. Take a look at a few research insights about how we can better protect marine biodiversity, presented by Nick Shears from Leigh Marine laboratory.
