    Nice fish @stingray

    Massive schools of kahawai in close still, their guts are chocka with anchovies.

    Interestingly both the snapper we got today had absolutely nothing in their stomachs. Were both males and full of milt

    Out early this morning with the boys. Good sea conditions to begin with. Heaps of wood about and some of them are massive so it pays to wait until you can see !!



    However it was the 3rd weekend in a row with the tide ripping towards the wind. So fishing with the rods was tough going.

    Heaps of boats, they just kept coming out from every direction. About 9 the south wester hit and sent everyone scatting for home.

    We had a couple of set lines to collect on the way in which produced some nice fish.

    Ended up helping out heaps of folk get there boats back on the trailer at the launching area. A lot of people were really struggling in those conditions. One time you are happy to have a small boat

    Fish were fat and full of crabs...

    Nice morning on the water this morning. The dawn broke to some funky clouds....



    There ended up being boats all over the place. Best conditions on a saturday for a few weeks so no surprise I guess

    We were back in at the launching area at 10am with a few nice fat fish so nothing wrong with that



    By the time I had finished up with the cleaning of gear and filleting it was lunchtime and luckily for me it had been cooking itself Bloody tasty !!!

    After a couple of weeks struggling away with the old wishing sticks my knee has finally freed up enough to go for a swim. Just in time for Johnny season. Saw heaps took a couple and left the rest for another day. Bloody good conditions in close at the moment
