    Thanks @Pengy
    28 or 29 years ago a mates girlfriend had a family batch at Kuaotunu where we would take his inflatable out from. Not many snaps but crays were good.
    Going in a 6m Scorpion hardtop

    Thanks for nothing (or something next week) Happy. Remind me to tell you my Urewera Spot X that goes off every April
    Same mate upgraded to a Fyran 440 and different girlfriend so Kuaotunu was off.
    One day we launched from Matarangi to go around the back of Merc Island. Fishing was good but didn’t notice a change in the sea until we came home. That was a long ride back

    We ended up playing in the current all facing wrong way so went out to slipper island and found a great sheltered spot.
    Good bin of three to four pounders .Steady bites couple of Kingies gave a good fight just under limit so catch and release
    Nice sleep then to Opito got a heap of scallops and back in again.
    Helped do 700 mtrs of trenching on Bro in laws block then night shoot 10 rabbits 1 wildcat.
    Great weekend. More trenching and pest control this weekend if the rain lets us.

    Happy there are crays in two feet of water just over there. Well there was the last time I was there.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    With great sadness we are pulling the pin on going to Whitianga
    Was looking forward to the weekend away and fishing but thats the way the weather gods have played their hand. The local fishing comp was also postponed till end of the month
    Still taking tomorrow off to spend the day with wife and kids. Maybe Kelly Tarltons

    Bugger. Still, there are plenty of fish at Kelly's place.
