Hey there All fisho's
Decided to head out this morning after reading Hermans post that there was alot of spineys and not much good fish.
Well I headed out to the red bouy at 9am, anchored up and dropped lines. Alot of action during the next 1 1/2 hours, water quite clean, sea fairly flat and no wind.
The following photos represent a good mornings catch. The Trevally is the biggest I have ever pulled on board, 58cm long weighing 2.7kg
Fish for tea for us & the neighbours!!

Hi Rex well done nice to see the port producing well and a variety too. I ended up going to Te Awanga in the end, surf was up and nearly bailed but it settled shortly after arriving. Headed off and coming back in interesting but uneventful .... a bit sideways with a cockpit full of water and a wave helping me on the way. Kept 6 snapper largest 43cm and others all 35 apart from one slightly small one....plenty more returned....great day in the bay.
