    I expect a full report with photos about the kontiki, then, a report on the fishing contest
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    We loaded up and headed to South Beach Wanganui on saturday to set up for an overnighter on the beach. We set the Kontiki out 4 times, 1 was a tangle around the reel so had to abort, 2nd must of been buggered batteries and only just made it out 350meters. 3rd and 4th went out ok and only got 1 tiny Gurnard and a crab. Surf Casting on Sunday didnt produce a fish for me, others in the group caught hearings and a tiny shark but no prize winners. I won a spot prize wow
