First fishing since March! Went out Sunday morning from Te Kouma: https://goo.gl/maps/F83Z5URYS712

Beautiful calm conditions, got a nice Kahawai while trawling a softbait on the way to the first mussel farm.

Mussel farms were pretty quiet, caught a few tiny snapper so moved on to a 28m hole where the link above is. Where I caught some just undersize snapper and an undersized gurnard. (using squid)

So moved in closer to shore for softbaiting in the shallows, caught a nice kahawai right in close to the rocks at the point, he took it off the surface about 2m from the boat which was pretty exciting.
Then got nice snapper in a similar fashion, casting towards the bay and retrieving from the rocks/kelp.

Good morning on the water, got back to AKL and smoked the kahawai, filleted the snapper and made some stock with the frame.

The Kahawai smoked up pretty good

The bigger the mission, the better the fishin'
