I am going to come down the bay this week Monday - Thursday. I am going to set some crab traps and then intend to fish.
What I am wondering is what I should be targeting within the bay. I have a 16 foot boat with good freeboard but only have an 18 horse on the back and feel nervous with the idea of trying to cross the bar.
I thought about trying for pile perch around hobsonville point and Kinchoe point but need some advice regarding method. I know how to fish for them from the beach but from a jetty or from a boat I am clueless. Should I troll for them? Should I anchor and plunk? Drift and jig?
Would trolling for salmon in the jaws be a waste of time?
Are there other fishing opportunities I am overlooking in the bay while I occasionally check my crab traps?
