Almost Got A Big One

Hi all,

Went out around Akuna Bay and cottage point etc yesterday for some bream and see what else was around. Had a very quiet day with only small baitfish to be seen, then decided to do a bit of trolling, a couple of pillies and a small squid put in the water and going through the slow zone of cottage point, had a small hit on the rod in my hand then a huge hit, not knowing what was happening I began we stopped the boat while I wound in the catch, then the line went slack sort of. Initially I thought the line broke, but there was still a little bit of wieght on the end, eventually I could see some silver and thought for a small fish that had some power and then upon a closer inspection, I had half a Bream on the line. Bugger I actualy would have prefered the fish that took the other half, oh well maybe next time.

Does any one have anysuggestions on what took the other half?

Have often seen small Hammerheads crusing that area, have caught a few too! About a meter long, quite capable of a bite like that!

Agree, I have also caught a small Hammerhead near gunyah. They love live bait!

I'm thinking large tailer or small shark, Kingies don't have the teath, looks like a clean bite. I have also pulled up small snapper like this, A shame they can't open there mouth a little wider and take the hook... :ranting2:

Im going with the shark, only because we picked up a little Mako out the front on Saturday and the Skippers mate got 4 on Friday off Whale Beach.

I think the elusive Hairtail strikes again!!! :1yikes:  :074:  :074:

That's a very clean bite.

The dentures on a hairtail make a wahoo look like a catfish. No hairtail took that pinkie - the bite's too wide and not clean enough.

I'm tending to call it for a tailor who love to chop the rear end off.
