Here's some tips and info for rock fishing Islands & rock stacks. The Hauraki Gulf is a great place for shore-based fishing and finding islands and rock stacks with deeper water or healthy ecosystems and better fishing. I like hunting for new spots that others may overlook and catching a feed. The same principles work the same for other parts of the country, just be safety conscious - fish with a mate, check the weather, don't take silly risks.

Scott Cushman presents a few hints and tips on landing BIG fish, including techniques on how to max out your gear safely so you get the most out of your rod / reel / tackle and land more big fish instead of getting smoked and disappointed. I talk about the 30% rule and how to break it, 100% knots, rod and reel ratings and how to choose gear that suit this style of fishing. This applies for any style of fishing - rock fishing, boat fishing, bait fishing, lure fishing.

No Fish - then I find a work up - snapper galore. I went out looking for yellowfin and yellowtail kingfish but couldn't find either. Coming home empty-handed near Little Barrier I came across a workup and filled the bin in 10 minutes. Snapper were hungrily hanging out below the gannets
