The Lateral Line: EP #44

Nato has his fly rod rigged and ready before the boat even hits the water. The first half of the day will be spent trying to get a fish to eat a fly. After that the boys are heading wide to some deep water pins to drop big live baits 100 meters plus down on one of Nato’s crazy deep water rigs.

The boys are off on their first fishing and camping mission on board Sojourn for 2022, again spending a few days in, on and around there favourite island group. Milan is doing what Milan does and what he loves most, that being, swimming big live baits on the weed lines close to shore. Hopefully a big hungry king fish has chosen the same weed lines to hunt down breakfast.

The very first fishing mission for 2022 is gonna be a land based fishing mission on New Zealand’s Wild West coast. Milan has some very good family friends that have farmed a beautiful piece of coast line for generations. Milan is lucky enough to have permission to enjoy this amazingly beautiful slice of paradise. Brother Toby is tagging along for this one and as always the boys have there sights set on catching something to eat. It’s been 6 weeks since the boys have had fresh fish to eat and as always that is the main goal but, Milan ends up landing the biggest Snapper he has ever caught in his life after it eats a bait off the surface right before his very eyes.

The boys check the forecast to see some spectacular weather predicted over the coming days. An off shore fishing and camping adventure is planned. A beautiful island group is the destination and brother from another mother Andrei and his son Luke are getting in on this over night fishing mission. The forecast was bang on and the fishing was just as good. The usual suspects were hooked and landed, Snapper, King Fish, Trevally and a Pig fish makes a small cameo appearance. There was a little bit of drama at the end…. but, nothing a helpful man driving a huge digger couldn’t sort out. Chur chur Kerepehi Transport.

The boys still have quite a few restrictions on where they can go and what they can do fishing-wise. Which isn’t a bad thing when considering the last 2 trips out to the island have led to heaps of fun being had and a few epic fish being landed. 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.

After an epic trip last time round, all the boys want to do is go back out wide and repeat the process. This time around, Andrei is keen-as to catch a big king and tags along. An epic day's fishing was had.
