    Fishing with Mikee

    Mikee had been trying to get me out for a fish for a while but there was always something else.
    It all lined up this weekend tho and Fridays Hell wind died off in the night.:thumbup:

    Standing on the roadside at 4something am I looked at my gear in the light of the headlamp and noticed the braid on my rod was a bit frayed. Should I pull a few meters off? Na itl be right.
    Mikee turned up with the cruise liner in tow and off to the ramp.
    It was busy of course but at least there was some parks.
    As he backed us down the ramp i noticed the boat next to us was draining water out the bung

    50 or so mins later we were laying some long lines which went well so i didn't get to show off the hook removal technique

    Then rods in water and we both caught a couple of gurnard then i hooked up what a thought was a snap and busted off my frayed braid:mad:

    Fished some more picked up lines and went lookin for some cod.
    Easy to find and catch as always but neither of us wanted to catch and release heaps of undersize to get some decent ones so we worked our way back up the coast fishing a few spots on the way then had a troll for a king, no luck on the kings but got some kahawai.

    Cheers for the trip Mikee

    Sounds like a top day out on the Briney. I like Gurnard but don't get it all that often.

    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 do need a bigger chilli bin though eh.

    Was a good day and the weather was great. I have been caught out where we went and 30 miles with beam on and short sharp swell makes for a fun trip home.

    Just had a look getting the marks for where we set the long line for a mate and we did 62 miles yesterday.

    Next time we will have a better try for a kingi or 2. (or we will get to Stephens in the winter for a bigger one)
