Perfect day for kayak fishing today. Overcast and zero wind. Perfect :y:

Launched at 6:45 and paddled over to Rangitoto.
The tide had not started to come in so things were a bit slow to start. Caught lots of fish around the 30cm mark like this one.

Meet these guys but I think they headed back towards NN so never got to see if they caught anything.

nice work Destin,

you will be eating fish this xmass day no room for turkey :y:
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.
