Hi all,

After weigh in and a couple of :beer: :beer: :beer:

Well what a day, The sun was out and so was the wind.The guys had a hard days fishing with big swells and wind gusts all around the Cape. A handfull of guys hit the Ohiwa Harbour getting pannies and trevs.
At the moment a 1.9 kg Snapper leads the comp, so hopefully weather plays ball tomorrow.

Cheers for the update. Makes me feel my decision to can it earlier in the week is justified now ;(
All those who went out the cape will only come back this afternoon. Will be interesting to see what they bring with them.

I can confirm that Sunday was an absolute cracker weather wise all over the cape, no wind and very little swell if any. Big fish and bigger stories to follow i'm sure ;)
The perils of kayak fishing are great...... especially for the fish!

well done Pete :y: nice fish
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
