    I'll need some directions. Might as well pick up the towbar too.

    What temp is the water? We have between 17 and 19 degrees, plankton down to 30 ft thick as...but zero bait fish! No gannets no dolphins stuff all penguins, saw two rat kings at okuri diving at 60 ft. just after New Years , beautiful blue water out in the open just a serious lack of bait and predators. A strange old season indeed!

    Yes indeed.
    Went over the western side of the bay yesterday with @gadgetman and one of the gadgetets and couldnt even catch a cold.

    Rig net to the rescue this morning.

    It sure is an odd season, we had to do major miles when I took my folks out and in the end were 'saved by the long line" even though the first 3 sets resulted in zero fish and all baits came back untouched, 4th set got a small Kingi @73cms and the last 2 managed to get a few snaps.

    BUT I have never up till then set each of my long lines more than once per outing (i have 2). The was nothing on the sounder at all over most of the bay. Water temp on Kina side was 18.5 and on the Delaware side 17.4 (we did better over this side)

    I wonder if everything is in the sounds this season?

    Big thanks to @veitnamcam for taking the rookies out to wet the lines. I even unwrapped another rod that had been sitting round for about 15 years. Another one of those really good deals that was too good to pass up that I might use one day. Gadgette#3 really enjoyed herself too, but was pretty quiet on the way home, she won't take much rocking tonight. Had a really great time.

    I smelt a bit of a rat when Mrs VC quietly put down the knife and stepped back. I look left to see VC wielding the phone to take a pic. Learned a heap off Mrs VC who did the vast majority of the skinning and filleting while fumble fingers here hacked at a few fish. The positive side of my fish hacking is that it can only get better, 'cause sure as eggs it can't possibly get any worse.

    We'll be doing much the same for dinner. A couple of kilograms of fish all bagged up and mostly freezing at the moment. A few doses are already off to the mother-in-law.
