Redcliffs turns on the silver

Whenever I have spare time, I love the challenge of fishing; apart from being relaxing, it requires effort and you never know what you might catch.

Summer in Christchurch provides the perfect opportunity to sneak to a handy beach and flick a line in the water. Redcliffs is a nice spot and an area I target, generally hoping to catch kahawai.

On this occasion, I was using a medium-to heavyup: an 8’ rod, Shimano Corvalus bait cast reel, swinging a 40g billy lure with a single hook.

It was a classic hot Canterbury day and I had my thoughts fixed on kahawai, so was initially quite delighted to hook up. However, this beast didn’t feel like a kahawai and I certainly wasn’t expecting it, but when the flash of silver turned into a magnificent barracouta, I was delighted. It is my first one and a surprise package to say the least.
