    Finally a fish...

    After a crap start to me year fishing with no luck, i purchased a new surfcaster and with little luck again, i posted the thread "how far can you cast".
    Lucky i did as @Shootm sent me a txt midweek, for a friday night fish.

    He pick me up and we were soon riding down the beach looking for holes and gutters.
    After a bit of a lesson on reading the sea, our lines were in the water. No more than 5 minutes later Ross had a big strike but it got off. Then he landed the first snapper of the night. Just on change of light the fishing was good, i had caught a small trevally and a kahawai but still no snapper.
    Then my rod bent over good and peeled some good line off , after a small battle i finally had my first decent snapper off the beach. Still bloody stoaked!!!

    Ended up with 6 snapper, 2 kahawai and and trevally between us.

    Was an awesome evening and a big thanks to shootm onece again for taking me out.


    Nice night in the manawatu for once.


    Ross hooked on a snapper







    Pretty pumped with this....

    Just to get your feet back on the ground, it doesn't always go to plan but last night it did. I was stoked to see that snapper on the beach too. Well done mate.
    What are you doing tonight.....

    Well done guys..
    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

    Never heard that one before. But when the wind buggers off and the water is clean works for me.
