Milan and Nathan start the morning in Long Bay west of Coromandel Township catching live baits for the day's fishing. After filling up the livebait tank, they steam up to a spot at the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula where the conditions look perfect for getting a berley trail going, cubing up and setting out the livebait.
The preparation work does its wonders, and Milan successfully catches a big kingfish. As the tide slows down, they seek out a new spot down the coast a bit. Nathan is having some fun with some big snapper until all hell breaks loose! The shark bait suddenly gets eaten, and Nathan finds himself in a powerful 101 with a big bronze whaler shark.
Gear & Fishing Tips
Netting your livebaits is a quick way of filling up your tanks, but make sure the mesh size complies with the rules.
Manson Anchors holds you at your spot all day.
Pumping quality berley and a constant flow of pillie cubes over shallow reefs, bring the kingfish into feeding mode.
