Thanks for the Lemons.

When life gives you Lemons, be thankful 🙂
For months I never had any luck using prawns for bait to target Lemonfish. People told me they love them, the next best thing to crayfish or crab. Yet I could never get anything to eat a prawn bait.
lemonsNow all of a sudden they’ve started working. I’ve no idea why, but I’m happy anyway 🙂

If it wasn’t for the Lemons I’d be posting yet another update bemoaning my lack of fish.
Since I last wrote on here I’ve managed to catch a couple of Kahawai and some nice Lemons. No Snapper or Gurnard yet, but Lemons are fine by me.

I seriously doubt there are any Snapper or Gurnard to be caught around Napier, at least very few of legal size anyway.
Kahawai are also very scarce at the moment.
In the last 8 Pania Surfcasting Club twilight fish competitions only 5 Kahawai have been landed total. This from 15 to 20 rods at each outing.

So its thumbs up to the Lemonfish, you have saved the day..
