    Well as you can see, we found some fish just not the size we needed, bite time was short about an hour maybe a bit more about 3/4 the way through the flood ...brim were at same depth as last week, plenty of tucker about, we even managed two slimy Mack’s, one stray lined the other long line bait...Tested varied depths from 6m to 22m spiky’s at all depths ..brim at 11m

    Wind tide etc all worked together ...but leaving a shit fish on your line whilst you finish your sandwich does lead to the odd tangle, couple of southern sailfish on the stray line and two carrots to boot kept hopes alive for a while.

    Think it’s time for a cod bash, a visit to the pass and some soak time for me ..crays still berried up but word is the change is coming.

    Thanks VC for the outing and the yarns! Simple pleasures like calm seas and great company! Cheers

    I took the boys over to Marahau this morning for a bit of a fish. Boat ramp was a ghost town with the lack of tourism..



    Didn't have to wait for the water at all, by the time I had the stuff in the boat it was in enough for launching. For any of you local fellas wanting to use it..if you look up the Astrolabe Roadstead on tide plan pro 2.4m + will get you on and off the trailer at the ramp.

    Out to fishermans island we went...



    Ended up the same story as you guys yesterday, plenty of small brim and kahawai kept the boys entertained but nothing bigger for the the bin. Boys loved it tho.



    Seen a big pod of duskys, a couple of blue penguins on the way back to the ramp. Got a surprise at the ramp as here was my mate backing down with his new purchase so went for a huss out beside him to show him where the dolphins were. Took this one for you @Sarvo. He is stoked, wee thing goes bloody good



    A great way to spend the morning Smiles all round. It won't be long now and we will be into the big ones !!!

    Safety alert.
    Yea we are all sick to death of "safety" or at least those of us that work are but listen up all the same.

    So this morning I chased up some new spark plugs for the outboards and changed the leg oil in them and generall check over for preventive maintenance. @Pengy gave me the heads up on a coastguard/harbour master boat check/lifejacket check/survey thing at the Nelson ramp.
    I look after my matainence myself but I thought I would take my life jackets down to be checked as I never have opened them from new as I thought
    1 they are New.
    2 Anything you take out of the packaging will never ever fit back in.

    So they were not checking life jackets as such but were showing how to check them.

    Came home and checked mine.

    One of which never opened from brand new didnt have the gas canister installed.....it was in the velcro outer but not screwed in or even in the sleeve.
    It would still blow up manually of course but that is not something you want to be pissing around with in the dark in a rough sea with gumboots on.
    Anyway I installed the canister and repacked it and put it on and set it off to make sure it was still operable. All good thankfully and will get a new canister asap.
    Both blown up till tomorrow to check for leaks.

    Really they should be checked annually at a minimum that the canister is installed firmly/ not rusty/ not peirced and left inflated (manually threw the mouthpiece) at least overnight to ensure the actual buoyancy part has not been pierced by a fish hook or fish spine etc.

    Check your life jackets !

    Yep heard of many a story about them not inflating, and also inflating when they are stored with wet dive gear.
    Anyway, spent Saturday up the island.......Piss pour to start with, started fishing at grevell (spelling) nothing, went further north to a special spot and got a couple carrots which we have never caught there before, went up to port hardy...still nothing happening! Packed a sad and headed back to nelson, pulled my head in a little bit and decided to fish another spot in Grevell (spelling again).........450cm cod, terikie (spelling again, again) carrots, 1 brim, trevally (not landed thou) all within 45 mins.
    All in all not a bad day out with the family.

    450cm cod!!! Got to be a nz if not world record!!!

    Sounds like a great day out.

    We went to a beach, so the kids could sign up for surf life saving... (6 and 8) and no rods were taken... And now my Sunday mornings are standing on the beach, with no fishing rods...
    However, fully support them giving a go, and learning how to swim etc in waves/ocean.
