    Caught one rather large Kahawai, one large red cod, one eel and saw a guy lose his 12 foot rod that ngot pulled in by a big fish .
    Saw others catch another large kahawai, couple of gurand, one legal snapper and a couple of bust offs on rays.
    The harbours full of rays of all sorts of sizes for some fun if thats your thing. Was fishing 7kg and 15kg line, caught rays on both

    Thanks again @veitnamcam. Had a real adventure today with the old man. Put the net out 2 hours after high tide. Blasted around to the front of rabbit island for a fish and picked up a couple small grey boys. Went and picked up the net as the wind was coming up. Ended up with 6 real decent sized rig! Tried to head back into Monaco but we run aground and had been blocked out by low tide as the channel had completely dissappered. Had to ring someone and get the truck and trailer moved around to the surf life club on rocks as we couldn't get into Monaco. We crashed out through the breakers all the back to the port. I never realised how much that channel changes, let alone the fact it can completely shut off on low tide. Lesson learnt. Was a bloody good laugh and a couple hairy moments. Everyone can have a laugh at our expense.

    Been there, done that, walked a mates boat a good km offshore of Mapua a few years back when the outboard died and low tide beat us
    Must get back out for a fish soon.

    Ah thats a bugger....hope the prop didnt suffer too much.
    I have lost count of how many times I have run aground in the channels in my dingy.
    there is a couple of ways in there but if you didn't go out at low tide would be pretty hard to find.
    glad you got some rig
