Just been staying with scribe for the last couple days to catch up on some serious fishing, something not all that common on the shores of Hawkes Bay. The weekend started well with a decent haul of yearling Kawhai from the net. Hot smoked they are beautiful and practically melt on the tounge. I think we've worked our way through most of them allready
. Next on the menu was abit of offshore snapper fishing. The snapper weren't playing ball though, as it seemed we caught the one resident fish before having to change spots again. not even the yellowtail were coming in haha. At the end of the day we still managed just under a dozen nice snapper destined for the pan. Today started out reasonably with a couple of beauty flounder in the net. the rest of the day was rather uneventful running around visiting old friends in the area. Well we got back in time to set the net and have another fish, although all the snapper hooked were still quite small.
The fishing has seemed to get increasing difficult over the past few days, probably coinciding with the full moon. It will be interesting to see the effect of the lunar eclipse on the catch in the net.
Ill see if I can get some photos up at home
