We made a slightly clumsy but funny video of our latest Kahawai fishing.
We went to the Whakatane River mouth in New Zealand and the Kahawai (as we call them here) were running up the river.

It was almost like a fish market with a hook up on every second cast.
We went during a major fishing time coinciding with sunrise and as you can see we had heaps of action.

I used very light spinning gear and it was a real challenge to land them and to prevent them from heading into the rocks.
After using my landing net it got a bit easier
