    So no wind and a nice moonlit night saw me waddling around in my waders at 1.30am.
    No flounder were seen, let alone captured for my brekky, but I did learn where all the paddle crabs hang out as well as where the sand is very soft and deep.

    After a bit of rain is good , the fresh will wash flounder food down into the estuaries. Last time I did it I was mid chest deep and I had an inner tube raft thing which I towed behind me for the battery , and mail bag type bag made out of a sack over my shoulder to put the catch in . I found that you really only need one barbed prong to hold the fish , with 3 they were to hard to pull off the spear ( put fish in bag , hold bag closed with left elbow and just pull the spear out ) specially if you find a few together and need to act quickly

    Flounder feed on baby crabs so reasonably firm mud is where I would be looking, or at least that's where I would look here. Also the less tide the better, if it's high tide the fish are spread out over acres of mud flat but at low tide all the fish are concentrated in the channels.

    I hear you VC. I checked the river out too, but no luck.
    I reckon it would be possible to catch flounder on those Gulp softball crabs, with the right setup.

    Whitianga. It is a direct line to the Westpac weather station for the chopper boys.I would guess that all regions have something similar to monitor conditions

    I reckon that is Pengy's ex's number and a mass saturation of annoying call is in order

    was going to come up and touch base over the weekend but sadly work was finished a bit late and I couldn't be fucked diving up in the dark and sorting out a cold camp. thought about tomorrow and a poach to Scribes trev spot, but that would be a bit rude and plus the Chiefs are playing and I only have free view at the beach. will pm you and Scribe when the weather suits and see if you guys are keen for a catch up.
