    There is a forum member over Richmond way who has a really nice one, custom built. Maybe you could borrow it

    Bit of a belated report, VC again took pity on me and tried once again to show me how to catch snapper! I am truely perfecting the art of catching sharks and showed this by boating a spottie dog on the first drop, then escalated things by hooking into a barstard red cod! The wind was doing wind stuff and made it hard for us to sit right to make the most use of the burley.

    VC's young bloke and I shared a packet of ginger nuts and a couple of brews of tea, he caught gurnard I helped by getting tangled in everyone's lines. The wind eased and we set a new burley a drift. VC boated a fat brim and low and behold I snagged one to, the tide ran out and the shit fish came on the bite, we pulled the anchor and recovered to hook line. We were rewarded with some more fat snapper.

    We all would have preferred them on the rod, but a feed of fresh fish to share is a feed of fresh fish! We had a lazy cruise home, got to the ramp and after yarning to others who had traveled far and wide we had most certainly done very well. With yarns of red cod, spikies and very little else. As I said before VC hunts fish and it is a great pleasure to be in his company along with his lad who is another of young one of life's gentlemen. Polite and full of the joys of life!

    Todays trip started with asking the boss early last week if I could take today off if the forcast stayed good......northern west coast is somewhere I have wanted to have a look at for some time but with a bar with a bad rep and seldom good conditions I just never got there....today it come good.
    Picked up a mate with some local knowledge on the way and out into the wet.



    Out on the high tide it was plain to see how one could eaisily come to greif on the bar even in the relatively good conditions.

    Runnin north to some neat coast line



    That spot chopped up real bad when the swell changed direction and turned the lee side into a washingmachien.

    Comming back in I learnt I needed to be half an hour earlier or 4 hours later.

    The mouth from the north(death side) and south(best side).....Im well out were Its safe for the picks but in close there are big breaking surf off to each side that woukd eaisily swamp/broach any trailer boat.



    In over the bar a bit shallow!

    Not enough water at ramp.....ended up disconnecting and snatch strap recovering trailer out of the mud.

    yup I know of another boat had a few exciting moments there recently, dropped 2m off a wave and skipper reckoned it was very ass puckering, so much so he didn't want to come back in over the bar and was stalling rather than coming in

    Yea first time and all and getting back in on a low outgoing tide (worstcase senario) I sat back and watched quite a few sets go in before I picked mine.

    Out today, first run for the boat as been overseas, for six months, few hours spent on the weekend, fixing wiring on the marine radio, and drain out old fuel and fixing the fuel won't prime problem, and leg won't lower, fricken electrical and salt.
    Flat battery at the ramp, sum Idiot, left the lights on in the boat overnight, tow back home charge for two hours and back to the Port,
    And not a single bite for 4 hours, oh well, nice to be back in NZ and the weather was decient, after a week of wind.

    @VC good mission mate, a place I have spent many an hour.
    Did your mate point out the little beach with the big rock bivy on the southern side of the inlet mouth just before the bar. If not have a look on Google earth. Great place for a night.
    Also don't be afraid to drop a line in the Chanel inside the bar as it can be extremely productive snapper fishing from time to time. Usually best on small tides 2 hrs either side of low tide b4 current gets to strong.

    Well done
