    Hi Kev,

    I remember fishing in a harbour there and it was just like that! I only had a 8/9wt so i'm lucky i was there in winter and the big kingfish weren't around. I;'m looking at immigrating to NZ though..i stayed there for a month and it was awesome! The fishing is great too if you have access to a boat and some local knowledge..Thanks for sharing that video! Awesome fish!

    Hi Guys

    We launched from Gordon's Bay harbour (Harbour Island ) at around 9:00 and headed across the bay to Cape Point. Sea was a bit choppy and made rigging conventional rods with line and leaders like trying to install windows xp in a heard of angry buffalo, as we headed across the bay. It was my first time to take a boat on this rout. Something special to see the Helderberg disappear into a blue silhouette and Cape Point becoming clearer and clearer. We made a few stops, one to see a whale and when the birds were working. But as soon as they started diving they were off again. We thought of following them but decided to head to the point. We let out a few lines with rappies and squid imitations and slowly trolled our way around the point. What an awesome sight as your go around the point. Nice structure but no fish so far. We headed around towards the beach. A real screamed but it turned out to be kelp. We noticed waves breaking over a shallow reef so decided to check it out. that also didn't produce any goods. We trolled around the point again into the bay. No bird activity anywhere at the point. The fish finder was picking up allot of bottom fish but nothing special which a few bait lines proved. So we headed back at about 3:30. Still a great day on the water, enjoyed every moment.

    Cheers
