A mate of mine that I recently caught back up with who I have not seen for just over 20 years has convinced me to get back into rock hopping after I stopped 10 years ago when I left Whangarei, so my first kingi mission off the bricks is going to be Te Maika over at Kawhia harbour seeing my mate has access to a dinghy that we can whip across the harbour in. Any suggestions in rigging live baits up as I have never done live baiting before and will be just putting them under a balloon any advice is appreciated. Will be using those pre made black magic livebait rigs to get me started
The rod I got for livebaiting is a penn gt special 15-24kg stand up rod and Penn 340 GT2 combo spooled with 15kg mono which will also be used for those opportunities that I get to go out on charter boats.
For straylining/popper tossing I have a 7ft shakespeare ugly stik black tiger (got to love these rods I regret selling my old one) which will have my shimano baitrunner 6000 attached to it.
There is also a second veritas with the standard guides sitting in the rod rack next to the veritas Low Rider
