Coventry Reef looked good

Mon, 2010-04-19 07:27

As Ol Yella said, Coventry is worth a shot. Tried our hearts out over the weekend to no avail, but lots going on around us. Maybe it was the banana muffins that some nice person bought on board for morning tea......

 When u fish for salmon by boat do you trawl first then? Or just keep an eye out for schools and cast?

Gezz old post this one, but nothing wrong with recycling.

Usually casting once you spot the or birds etc but nothing wrong with having a trawl while looking. Coventry reef mentioned above along with a few other breaking spots is worth a try.

 We've trolled them up at Rotto when there are no boats or birds around so it doesn't hurt to have a couple of lures out. Sometimes get southern bluefin tuna too.
