    Yeah, we saw you out on your SUP as we were leaving. I call fowl though. I don't think there were any fish left for you.

    Big thanks to @stingray for organising this event and @veitnamcam for getting us onto some fish. An absolutely epic weekend. I must say that stingray must have some friends in very high places to have such amazing weather, sea, fishing and people organised for this event. Having taken note of these connections I was on my very best most polite behaviour.

    While we were driving up from Chch on Friday Stingray was on mine sweeping duties ridding the place of sharks and any rubbish fish. He did a fantastic job because the following day when we were soaking sinkers we didn't pull up one rubbish fish.

    We followed VC and gadgette#3 out in the morning.

    Stingray got right into the fishing with a couple of nice snappers and a rare for this area trev.

    VC got gadgette#3 onto her first snapper, along with other species. I'm not sure if VC's ears have recovered yet, but we were buggering off in the other direction and could still hear the excitement over the hum of Mr Yamaha from 200m away, so buzzed on over for a looksie.

    I would have taken more photos but we were too busy hauling fish on board until the cooler was full.

    Massive thanks to everyone. Good to meet new faces like @Shearer, and his good lady and @madjon_, and catch up with @Munsey again.

    What is there to say, except well done to all . Big effort from the ChCh contingent driving so far while keeping fingers crossed for good weather etc.
    Take a bow @stingray
    Shearer obviously gets the dunny seat award for the awesome spotty catch.
    Next time....I WILL be there to jinx you all

    gadgette#3 is not here at the moment, but she says she's in.

    Was great catching some new species too, things we don't have with the fishing I've done down here. Snaps, Trevs, and even a couple of berley pots.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    No. I might need some lighter line as I couldn't cast far enough from here

    So after all the fish are fried, lies are told and rods and reels cleaned ....one person stands alone ...his lures hanging limply from his rod , stacked 5 deep in his tackle box! Years of experince of north island snapper under his belt!!

    Watch and learn he scolded me , no smelly bait hands for me he scorned us high on his tackle box! Lures are the future he announced to us the unwashed unbelievers!! So now as the dust settles and the tide once again laps quietly against the shore and epic snapper battles are relieved with partners and children sitting wide eyed in wonder as gentleman and a young lady remember battle fought against mighty demonsions!

    All .......but the one who failed to slay a mighty south island snapper ... @Shearer a young man with so much promise only to stumble at the very first hurdle slaying spotties two at a time. It must have being a crushing defeat from which he did not recover and was unable to slay a South Island snapper ...next year shearer next year ....hell mate I'll even bait your hook !

    Huge thanks to the forum member that pointed this fact out to me!

    Poor ol Shearer copped a lot of flack for lures but I think his shoulders are broad enough to take the load.
