It’s not every day you see a kahawai of this size. Brad from Hamills, Rotorua caught this absolute hog while softbaiting out of Whakatane.
His kahawai which weighed an astonishing 7kg was caught on Black Magic 15lb Tough Fluorocarbon. We can only imagine the fight this fish gave on light tackle. Well done Brad – you got a kahawai into our NZ Hall of Fame…who would have thought?
