Met Tightlines on the beach at 6.30, JVT was busy and Hainsey decided to go to Army Bay :n: :n: We headed out to the 2km mark straight off the beach a slight ripple on the water and watched the sun come up as we paddled out
and the view just got better
A little furthur ourt we came across 2 mermaids who had heard Hainsey had been granted an emergency visa to visit East Auckland, they were very dissapointed when we told them he had gone to Army Bay ;( ;( . Got to our spot Tighlines drifted around for 5 minutes while i dropped the brick, he soon got bored of that and anchored up, burley in the water and we started fishing, i had half a skippy which i had forgotten to take out of the freezer last night, eventually got the fillet off and the frame in the burley bag, then opened the hatch and the fillet slipped over the side :swear: :swear: had to revert to the cooked prawns and swimmer crabs (on special at countdown). Tightlines was using fresh piper netted on saturday. After the burley started working the whole morning was none stop action we were both hooking up as soon as the bait hit the bottom. All mid size fish up to 45cm, there were a lot of big hits but the hooks just wouldnt set. We ran out of bait so Tightlines replenished the stocks with yellow tails and a few ky, he also lost a huge ky at the side when the line snapped. We didnt see anyone else out fishing and only one boat drifted by.

Excellent fishing trip, good to see the fish are still there, the big ones seem to be very picky about what they take but the pannies taste better. :D :D :D

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P

Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
