Decided to take the day off work as the weather has been total shit and I haven't been out in weeks.

Went to Rough Rock and caught 6 pretty quickly, but then it went dead and never got another decent bite.

Ended up drifting all the way back to the Takapuna cliffs were I spotted what looked like a group of swimmers in close.

Turned out to be a pod of dolphins!

First time paddling with them for me - they are HUGE close up. Very impressive indeed.

Nice handful of winter Snaps :y:

Congratulations on your first encounter with the dollies too, they were Bottlenose, the most frequently sighted in shallow waters and happy to give a keen yakker a race :lol:
