Had a annual leave day today took advantage of a magic day before the crap comes our way again. Got on the water about 10 am mint conditions with just a sea breaze from the south west, out going tide made it a nice drift, caught a couple of small Kahawai which I threw back, then the snaps came on line 3 lovely pannies then grandad came for a look ,he will be in the smoker tomorrow yummy, fresh fish for my 89 yr old mum who is staying over !thanks Mr Neptune :inlove:

Thanks Steven, I think it was posted upside down because I had my I pad that way up when I posted the photo. I am surprised there was much fish about as the long liners are working the area hard out dam it :devil:

That will be the problem. You should be able to rotate it in an editing program. If you have apple products I don't know what that would be. For a PC I use Picasa which is a free Google product.

I think the reason for the photo being upside down is a little less obvious than just holding the camera upside down. I have followed Big K's trip reports for years and they all have a common theme. Great fish, same location and an added extra. The following last 10 photos may give you a clue.

The clue is no bottle I must have drunk it before posting ,ha ha. Actually first time this has happened to me ,the photo was taken with my I Pad , it was the right way up however when I posted the TR I must have turned it up the other way, or was it because I beat the crap out of it last week when the forum went down :rofl: :rofl:
