Shore fishing.

Postby veitnamcam » Mon Apr 04, 2016 11:21 am

Been stuck out the end of fairwell spit for nearly a month now.

Been a bit of fishing but not nearly enough. Rig and grey boy and kahawai seem plentiful.

Currents can be very strong on the beach and its quite flat so its fishing in your undies as wading out is necessary.

Morning Cam, That is quite some job you have on there. Is the lighthouse being restored because of its real usefulness to shipping or as a monument to a time passed.

The reason I ask is because some of our lighthouses have been decommissioned. I know when my Wife and I were sailing around it was very comforting to see the blink of the light and read its code away in the distance. Especially I remember our trip up the Waiarapa Coast. Because our crew tended to want to snuggle in close to the coast at night and it is a dangerous one I set a course well off shore. When the sun came up in the morning 'thank God in the right place' dear old NZ was gone. The effect on people who are out of sight of land for the first time is really quite amazing.

I think mainly as a monument to a time past.

It is certainly still a useful light but the cost of maintaining the structure vs just putting a pole in the ground with a light on top.
