I had a small operation on my foot on Friday and the doctor said don't go running around or get it wet in the next 48 hours. :?: :?: mmmmmm don't know how that was ever going to work.

A magnificent spring day in Auckland today. I walked down to Kohi beach at 7am.

Similar fishing to the last few trips. Very little sign and only the occasional touch on the softbait.
At the end of the first drift the softbait did get touched and pulled a bit of line.

A cracker morning on the water plus 3 nice fish (40, 51 & 53cm). This weather should hold for another 2 days :clap:

Nice fish Destin, was out today, was going to paddle over to your area but stayed on the green side. Did ok but would loved to have hooked one of those 50cm snaps.

May catch you next time.
