Rotorua Trout Fishing

This weekend (6/12/08) I was up early and on the water at about 6am again at Hamurana. I again trolled down towards ‘The pins’ trolling my trafficlight setup. In the similar spot as last week I got a very solid hit that just took line. I killed the motor and started to play the fish. It stayed down deep and kept making good solid runs.

I eventually got it close to the boat and then realized that it was a very nice fish. There was no leaping into the air, just good solid runs. I was beginning to wonder if I could even get it to the boat and I was also concerned on how I would get it into my net. Eventually I was able to lead it into the net, but I had to put my rod down and use two hands to lift it into the boat.

It turned out to be a good solid fish of about 7.5lbs, the biggest that I have caught for many years. I also managed to land another smaller fish, but released that one to grow bigger.
