Left the beach at about 7:30am, on a frost covered kayak, nice crisp morning! Headed out to my usual spot, strayline out, bang good gurnard on straight away. Softbait was a bit slow then my strayline got hammered and was heading west at a great rate of knots. My first thought was kingi, sweet, but after about 5mins up popped an 81cm snapper!! woohoo!!. Ended up with 5 snapper, other 4 were between 36 and 48cm, a gurnard and a fat kahawai. My big snapper went a tad over 20lb, new PB for me :rock: :rock:
