    Easter weekend comp at Kawhia

    Well I did the fishing comp weather was crap squally showers was even worse on Saturday which stopped me from going near the harbour mouth to the spot where joyce caught a good sized snapper the weekend before in our new boat.
    So end result for Saturday a lot of travelling around the harbour trying different areas, on Sunday got up to 1.5M swell while we were anchored around the corner from the harbour mouth in the Te waitere channel the boat handled it rather well plus the slightly worse stuff as we had to re enter the main kawhia channel when we had to get out of there (was pretty cool having the boat riding the back of the swell all the way back to calmer waters to keep the rest of it off our arses) end result for sunday Joyce caught a 0.925kg gurnard that took third place which got her a nice 5ft rod and overhead combo along with a nice trev to go into the smoker to keep the kahawai I caught company which we got nowhere in those sections and my last ditch effort to catch something other than a kahawai to weigh in on the final day resulted in a 0.955kg gurnard that took 1st place which I caught an hour and a half before closing time for the weigh in and earned me a really nice straylining combo. Other than the shit weather and wet arses we had a good time.

    Really liking the boat always picking up on new things have been watching coast guard videos on bar crossings ( I am not going to attempt it) to pickup on different boat handling techniques and what I did yesterday by sitting on the back of that one bit of swell is the same thing they do when crossing a bar on the return and just gave us a more comfortable ride as well as maintaining that one speed in fact I am looking at doing the bar crossing course in the near future just so I can pay $35 to go for a ride on the coast guard boat over the Kawhia bar to see what it is actually like as well as learn more stuff, yeah it was pretty cool actually winning a prize for a change as I am normally the one sitting by watching everyone else clean up the prizes.
    Sadly @veitnamcam there were no pics as it was too bloody wet to even think about getting the phone out for pics while on the water, will see what we can do next time we go out on the boat and for the Kawhia queens birthday one day comp that is coming up in June hopefully by then I will get to know a few more spots on that harbour and it is one harbour you definitely need to explore at low tide so you can learn where all the channels are to be able to get around there as the place is full of sandbanks.
