Headed out to Wai-iti today with Hurley Burley's mate Stu. we launch at white cliff beach, and not long after we anchored it was on, we caught a few ky i got some gurnard to follow with some snapper, the where plenty of ky around through some back, i enjoy catching them, good fun. after a playing with ky i hooked up a cuda, for Stu also catching a nice snapper and also plenty of ky, we had a good day of fishing.Heading back in was not to bad, for me at least poor Stu did some surfing the a BIG dump, luckily only loosing a cheap fishing.Thanks Stu for an awesome day of fishing and thanks Hurley Burley for getting me in contact with Stu. :y:

was a fun morning, and really nice of those guys on the beach to give us some hints and a lift with the yaks! hope to catch up again soon.
