Sparrows fart, and just to show I haven't got the hang of this yet, as I was launching, I'd just got my legs into the Kayak and was about to paddle out, when I heard a noise behind me, turned to see what it was, and promptly fell out of my Kayak into 3 feet of water in a tangle of rods and leashes. Boaties looked on, amused.

Any hoo, got some fish = happiness.

Curiously the Gurnard, coughed up prawns after it was boated. Actual prawns - about 1/3 the size of the ones you'd buy at the supermarket. I didn't know NZ had prawns, for Gurnard to eat, shrimps yes, but all the shrimps I've ever seen have been ~ 2cm or so, not 5cm . Interesting.

nice mixed catch there mate

used to get big shrimp up at pukenui wharf by houhora, they would sit on the concrete side on walls next to the piles in the sun... from just under the surface to a foot depth in the water, scoup em up with a fine mesh landing net, fry em up whole in a hot cast iron pan, similar to those small shrimp you buy at the supermarket
pretty sure it would be the same environment around the city wharves too to get them

I'm going to hazard a guess at greasy back prawns - they're an exotic invader.
