How to fillet a fish
Hints & Tips
If you’re anything like me, you are lucky enough to regularly find yourself filleting nice eating sized snapper. Surely practice makes every cut perfect then? Yeah, not so much. Every time I think I have filleting dialed, and I might get a few absolutely bang on, there’s always that fish that just throws you, and you end up feeling like Edward Scissorhands on the piss. Here’s a quick vid taken on my phone by my mate Lloyd, after a brilliant morning session on the kayak.

How to catch tarakihi - Pete Lamb's top tips
Hints & Tips
If your taste in fish is like mine, tarakihi are arguably the best quality eating fish you can catch in New Zealand virtually all year round, and a crumbed fillet at the Fish’n’Chip shop is commonly made from this species. They can be caught throughout the country but are more prevalent around the Cook Straight, east Cape and South Island, and Bay of Plenty regions than they are further north. Not only are they great eating, they also offer a pretty good tussle on the end of the line. You can catch them off the shore and in the boat anywhere from as shallow as five metres, right down to well over a hundred. Without doubt they are probably my favourite eating fish, so although they only grow to a limited size, they are always more than welcome on board.

Z Man DarterZ soft bait bodies
Gear
I’m a big fan of Z Man soft bait bodies. I’ve used them for many years and found that they are usually my go-to choice, and I’m not alone. The other option is GULP, which are an entirely different proposition, and more recently, Catch and Daiwa entering the market with a very similarly based product to Z Man. That is, a tough, but very stretchy elastomer material in a range of tasty colours.

Talking to Bonze about rigging for marlin
Big Game
Our north island road trip with young Flyn Jack (@Flyn Jack Fishing) had us dropping in to see the legendary Bonze (Bonze Lures) for some expert advice on rigging for marlin. Bonze is world famous as a true expert in his field, and if you want advice on how to catch marlin, Bonze is well worth listening to. It was so great to see such a busy man take the time out of his day to help out Flyn, and he gave us some great advice about setting up the boat, which eventually turned out to be very valuable, with Flyn landing his first marlin. It's pretty rough and ready, but I ran the camera to grab some of this advice as Bonze talked to Flyn, so take a look and you might pick up some tips.
