    Hunting/Fishing around Mokau.

    I'm travelling up to Mokau on Monday for 10 days work and haven't visited the area before.
    Just wondering if anyone would be able to give me some pointers on sea fishing or hunting in the area so that I know if it's worth taking a fishing rod or rifle up with me.
    I probably won't take a rifle, but quite fancy the chance of catching a snapper or two as we don't get many down here in Christchurch!

    Yep but ease into it slowly. About six dozen quart bottles should be the go for the first night. Ha ha ha ha. Gibo and I will clean up the left overs if there are any.

    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

    I saw many many goats...and the two fishing rods that I took were as much use as a chocolate teapot!
