Had a good work day fishing. Caught 4 kahawai and five gurnad (chucked one back to Tangaroa). Stopped in one place n all we caught was gurnad. Hooked some cudas as well. I was on track to land a snapper when in my haste and eagerness to get it into the boat and get a photo I got too carried away n tried to land it without a net.....:-( a lesson learnt the hard way as it was a good size snap.. Still a good day no burley making and able for the first time to eat something on a boat. In saying that in the words of one boatie we talked to 'it was a bit sloppy eh' fuck was it what.

I don't know this view we passed this area in the Yacht in the dark. GA mentions Gannet Island so I presume that this then is Porongia Mountain 'Packhorse'.
You have become quite the little sailor and fisherman in the last few months.

Mount Karioi next to Raglan 'Scribe'. Just broke my boat fishing hoodoo by not chucking up and catching fish other than kahawai. Still gotta pop the cherry on the snapper though.

This was the spot for us this morning.

Tucked up next to a working mussel barge. See the water next to the mussel shute, it is a rich mussel chowder. Needless to say it didn't take long to catch the 7 snapper we were allowed each. There were an abundance of kahawai and kingfish darting in and out of the chowder as well.

There were quite a lot of big snapper caught around us mostly by the soft bait crews drifting through the chowder.

To much like work standing up casting those things and backing the boat and drifting through the slick. We tie up to the mussel bouys and lean back and relax on our soft seats. We use pillies and use 2 hook ledger rigs. Anything much bigger than 40 has a fair chance of going back if its got any age. To be truthful if the fishing was any easier than it is up here it would hardly be worth going.
