Will be heading out from the port around sunrise. Swell is looking to be around 1m and winds light, looking forward to catching a feed again, if conditions line up i'll be heading to my rock i've been eyeing up for a while. Would be cool if some others tagged along!

I will probably be there Blair because the swell is to big to go anywhere else

It Was one of those days for me... great conditions this morning and red hot Spiny fishing, I caught about 20 of them in the end. Sounder was showing no sign anywhere, paddled 2km out to have a nosey at one of the southern pania buoys. Not much happening there either, except more spinies, and landed a large red cod which was a nice change, Unfortunately no fish for dinner!

I took a fairly relaxed approach to the morning ,with high tide at about 9.30am , so I was pleasantly surprised to see a good muster of kayaks , and possibly a new person to the group.
Didn't make the fishing any better ,but good haul there Rex , on what was a pleasant morning!
