Another cracker of a morning that was perfect for a fish.
I headed out at 6am for the long paddle over to Rangi. I did one drift on the outgoing tide and picked up 4 in the 35-40cm and one 46cm.
At the end of the drift I had enough to come home but with the tide low at 9:30 I knew I needed to stay out until 10:30 to save me a long wade through the shallows at Kohi.
So I had lunch and then paddled out into the channel but could only find undersized fish. Paddled back to Rangi and did a drift heading back towards home.

It was a very quiet drift until my very last cast. I even said "This is the last cast" on the video :)
It got taken on the drop and I could tell this was a little bigger. Ended up being 55cm (2.5kg). So a total of 6.
Paddled back home and had some fresh snapper for lunch. Yum.

Nice to see the consistency is still there... another typically solid Destin catch.
