Tomorrow's looks like it will be an absolutely mint day. No wind, no cloud forecast. :rock:

I'm thinking Opito bay in the morning to wet my yak for the first time and try the newly installed FF.

Not to early cause it's a bit chilly first thing for a softy like me :wasntme:

If anyone else is keen, I'd love the company. 8)

Can't do tomorrow, but was planning on heading out in the rain on Friday.

Good hunting and let us know how you get on :y:

Don't recall seeing a double post, must've been one of the other Mods but I'll take credit on their behalf :lol:

Might want to sleep in if you don't want it too chilly - gonna be a good frost tomorrow ;)

Have a good one though, I've got solid meetings and death by powerpoint until 11, definitely know where I'd rather be!

I think putting the kayak on the car the night before may have been a mistake ! :lol:

Kayak Floats? :y:
FF Working well? : :y: (but then stopped after 2 hours so :n: )
Not too cold? : :y: ( Wearing gumboots was a stroke of luck.. didn't even get wet feet)
First stop off at a beach for a wee without turtle : :y: ( and found the dodgy crimp connector to the battery and got the FF going again : :y: )

And to quote someone recently.. "It's good I don't have to spend an hour at home filleting fish" :lol:

What a day on the water.. mirror surface most of the time.. not a cloud. Was bloody hot out on the water.

Frustrating fishing.. tons of KY workups all around me.. caught lots of small KY's and small snapper. Lots of funny bites ruining my SP's but not sticking. :swear:

Can't wait to do it all again 8)
