    Few days fishing East Cape

    Last Week the wife and I and brother-in law his partner and mate headed up past Te kaha to a nice place we have fished on and off for quite a few years. In the past we rented a house from a mate at work but this time we just camped out of the truck.
    When we arrived it was blown a gale and the sea was angry, setting up camp was a mission as the tarp was just about blown away.
    No problem though as we just slept in the back of the ute, my brother-in law built a wall from drift wood then made a frame for the tarp which worked a treat.
    Fishing was not much cop that first day but managed a few small Kawhai. The following day after exploring the rocky bays we fished the incoming tide in much calmer conditions.
    Once again a few fish, snapper and Kawhai were caught enough for smoked fish for lunch.
    Fishing the evening tide resulted in the wife catching a couple of just undersize snapper so they went back for another day, later that night after we had given in to sleep the brother-in law caught a couple of snapper and a sting ray one of two caught.
    the following day we broke camp and headed home as I had a deer in the fridge that needed to be cut up and frozen.
    Was a nice break away on a beautiful piece of coastline,Name:  P1020945.jpg

    Love that area. Used to spend a lot of time up there fishing off the rocks. Finding my new rock haunts down south now.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.
