All this week there have been workups along the Marine Parade. Beginning Monday the fish have come in close and at times large pods of dolphins have been feeding as well. I would have thought the KY would be full of whitebait but surprisingly that hasn't been the case . Most of the fish Ive got have been in reasonable condition but with very little in the gut. Good to see the marine environment hotting up!

the spring work ups are here! I got out on sunday for a test of the new sounder in the harbour. Clear picture and even marked baitfish and dropped the sabiki down and caught them! Hopefully get a weather window between these NWesterlies and get out there and do it! Still After that Kayak Moki!
