I've only been fishing off the kayak since the end of last summer. Himatangi is the first time I have gone back to the same spot closest to home which is good because being from the naki I don't trust the weather forecast and tend to look at webcams and out the window to decide when to head out.

Was using Bonito. With these big spring thunderstorms around a morning session might be alright. I need to sort some problems I identified last weekend so my morning will be on the couch watching the all blacks.
