Headed out yesterday with 7 days and Wondaboy....it was a funny day! Surf was up a bit but we all managed to get out okay.We stayed in close (about 10m) and paddled down the coast. 7 days dropped anchor, while Wondaboy and carried on for another 2k. Dropped anchor, deployed burly and then the vhf crackled....I'm going to need some help here guys.....What's up 7 days.....I've got a hook through my finger....have you got some side cutters.....no! Okay I'll up anchor and be there soon. After a 2k paddle I arrived to see 7 days with his thumb in the air, silhouetted in the early morning sun; the sun rays filtering through the flasher on the hook :lol: . After cutting the hook off, 7 days pulled it through, I told him he was a brave boy and headed the 2k back to my spot. Baited up and first line down brought up a JD. Sent down a sabiki for some liveys; it only went about 2m before almost every hook was loaded...yes! Dropped a double ledger with liveys on both hooks and put the other liveys in my burly pot for later :) The line screams out and up comes a 14lb snaps and a JD. I dropped some more liveys wich got nailed by kahawai. A couple of panies went in the bin. Dropped the sabiki for some more liveys and up came a gurnard. Dropped it again and up came another gurnard...with a livey. Threw the livey on a hook and it got nailed by a gurnard :) The call came from Wondaboy to pack up and while packing up the ledger screamed. There wasn't much line let on the reel by the time I got it under control and finally a nice kingi is on the kayak. A quick weigh put it over the 12kg with it's tail still curved around and sitting on the kayak. IT was let go to fight another day.
Wondaboy had landed a 20lb plus on soft baits and 7 days managed to get the hook into a few good snapper....instead of his thumb.
we all managed to negotiate the surf back in...a great day on the water.
