    Not sure. Think they're on their way now. It was part of a deal for a hunt he did for the charter owner.
    They're looking forward to it as it has been on the table for a while and they haven't had time.

    Id say their chances for a stickface are high no matter where they go based on the season to date

    Was just talking to him. They leave Sunday but I forgot to ask where. I will see them in the morning and ask where they're going if I remember

    We will have smallish tide which means boat launching and retrieval will be a breeze and most if not all will be able to launch and retrieve at everything but low tide.

    As well as this long range is looking acceptable for Friday Saturday , vis may be a bit shit depending on the volume of rain we receive. Fishing for snapper if we are going deep should not be affected ...small tides could well mean short bite times or any bloody thing.

    Beds are looking like this
    Shearer and his good lady , a double. ( work dependent)
    Gadget and his daughter next to them,
    There is bunks and single which would suit snorers ,
    VC will either be fishing , going or packing for fishing so I don't expect he will require a bed.
    R93 wants to sleep outside in a one man tent but we will save him a bed / couch if required!
    That leaves two and a double spare.... so if you have a air mattress chuck it in just in case ,we have a heap of floor space!

    Towels etc all ready to go, BBQ delivered this weekend! Bait freezer etc on site

    So you will require beer , and some basic tucker plus a thermos would be good idea for a hot drink if boating,a set of warm cloths to be comfortable as the mornings / evenings are cooling down.

    @R93 I am keeping my wings crossed that the predictions I have seen so far are wrong, or she changes course

    I'm picking a change in strength and direction it will hit the cooler water and lose its driving force plus the pull of the currents will take it towards the west coast ..sorry R93. Well that my bet.

    I'm going fishing next weekend, folks got home dropped of the keys cod and small snapper at the northern entrance! Not flat but bearable

    Currents around the NZ coast the cyclone is sitting on the topical current

    Yep was more of a keep the spirits up type post

    As above it wont be mint but should definitely be fishable!

    Situation maps tell the general story but for my fishing (small open boat) I find windyty and swellmap(mostly windy) pretty bloody good for picking a hole in the wind.
