    Best conditions yesterday , but fishing didn't go to plan . Lost a good fish that took a lure . Seen plenty of rat kingies ,but they where just content on sunbathing . So still haven't landed one this year .We got two blue cod which is a bonus for our area . Plenty of Hectors

    Yes well, I'm just please someone did OK. We won't mention the complete and utter shambles. One tyre blew on the motorway, the spare pooed itself about 2 kms later and then the battery in the truck decided to crap itself in symperthy. Started the truck alright this morning but not even turn it over after the second blow out.

    Firstly and as always a huge Thank you to VC!

    I wish I had more photos and hope VC will post a couple to aid this yarn. Up at stupid o'clock this morning which meant VC was up at Oh dear god o'clock. He arrived at mine we loaded burley bait and tucker into the Fryan, out to the ramp headlights on ( cheers Gadgetman).

    As they say life is an adventure, so into the darkness we went, VC going by experince and a GPS, we gently felt our way out into open water, we headed out quietly into a gentle roll and pitch black apart from the lights of the container ships on the horizon.
    Half an hour gone and dawn breaking we set to getting the hook line in the tide. That done we eased up dropped the anchour and burley.

    I expected a the usaual sharking so had packed a thermos and large lunch box in advance! We were only half way through our first cup of tea/ coffee when VC got a hit. Then it all came on...no time for eating bullshiting or relaxing we were into them. Holy hell you would get a tap tap tap bite give it a strike and damn near every time the rod came up solid , drag screaming beautiful fat snapper.

    Things eased off a bit so VC checked and reset the burly then it went from good to un bloody belieaveable, drop a line tap tap strike fish on, then nightmare in the middle of a hot bite I snagged a rat kingi ,,round VC round the burley line ...ahhhhh!! VC in his calm and dependable way, netted the offending fish cut my line and return to his fish and left me to rerig and to return to the fishing...

    By then we had binned some very nice fish and with a hook line to recover we called it in the middle of the hottest snapper bite I've ever fished...over to the hook line ...a large shape came up to the surface a dirty great seven giller about 5 ft long... not to be out done 10 hooks later a bloody great bronze / ?(un sure of species ). VC in his generous manner suggested that it could keep the hook and tried to get a photo durning that time it snapped the trace and was gone.

    With a enough fish to share with both families and friends we headed for home, in day light the channel and voyage out was seen by myself for the first time, a twisted narrow corridor that VC had run us through showed local knowledge is a key, also as we approached the sand bar VC in his dry humor says , "If it gets to shallow here you may need to get out and give us a push"...then you see the flying carpets of dozens of huge rays moving ahead of and away from the boat....ha bloody ha.

    Back at the ramp whilst I wait for VC to get the truck, I enjoy a fight of godwits? Little brown looking oystercaters! And watch 2 inch long flounder move about at my feet! ..we do live in an amazing place filled with good barstards like VC and many others. What a day what and adventure. A truely magical memory!

    Two of the nine we kept , not all were this big but great eaters. We took less than half our quota.

    The average size was down a fair bit on previous trip bit these ones are the best eating anyway.



    Bitey things eating snapper.



    That was the small one I failed on the photo of the big fecker.

    Awesome morning on the water cheers Stingray
