    Cheers for a great day out Cam Thought my bad luck with snapper was going to play out again but Cam saved the day with some nice fish. Like a milk pond out there today, couldnt of asked for better other than some more action on the rods but cant complain. Top bloke that guy Veitnamcam , even a expert on small shark catching

    Well the morning was long but the company was brillient. We played "catch and release" with about 50+ red cod ( something not normally caught here, Same for a similar number of spiky dogs and a few baracutta as well. Only one edible leagal blue cod was nabbed by our guest fisher. Which was not retuned whilst being measured @Pengy
    Bloody good day

    The therapy session,

    Mikee got us at sparrow fart to avoid the craziness at the Nelson ramp which went to plan, we were on the water and away as the madness was beginning. Headed down the coast towards Pepin island , set up camp ,hook lines ,burley and a cup of tea.

    Sharks were straight into the action along with some bloody red cod, birds going hard around us then a pod a dolphins roared passed everything screamed fish.......and fish we did ..yarned up a storm was excellent therapy for us all!

    Mikee did some intel and made some phone calls not much happening around, so we pulled the hook lines and looked back towards home ...Mikee the cunning bugger put us on some reef and my mate Sol pulled a keeper cod from the blue ...yehaa ...we ate lunch had a brew, sat , yarned soaked baits all was right with the world ...trolled some repalas home, snakes were hungry but the kings were not ..Mikee got us home ahead of the sea breeze turned howling gale ..

    Gave the boat a rinse had a further yarn , packed up and away. A wonderful day just what myself and Sol needed bloke time talking bloke stuff , fishing & relaxing. A huge thank you Mikee for your hospitality and trying everything in your tackle box to get us on the fish, your endless paintence and great humour made for a absolutely wonderful day.

    Big hopes for @Munsey to come through with some fishing stories of epic ness ....

    Im off to Stewart Island for 10 days.
    Just a chill out with my adult children and their partners coming.
    Not really fishing seriously ( yeh right ).
    Not really going diving much ( yeh right ).
    And not really hunting seriously ( yeh right @223nut ).
    But seriously going to relax and see what the Island has to offer.
    Taking 2 packrafts and have a mate joining us with another packraft a little later. So looking forward to spending some time out on them in Patterson inlet.

    I believe the beer is cheap over there and groceries are expensive.
    Makes it sound like the perfect place to live off the land !

    Christchurch just had the driest November in 165 years I think.
    BP where I am we were 500mm ahead of average yearly rainfall at end of October.
    Then the tap got turned off and it hasn't rained alt all since.

    So lets just get this straight then ..... you don't drink beer anymore ?

    Yep a very good day, Harbourmaster was checking Nav Lights etc when we arrived at the ramp early morning. I think a few people were not that hapy to see him. And one poor sod managed to lose his very very new looking boat off the trailer whilst backing it down the ramp. All before 5am

    looks like the snapper have gone off the bite in the bay though for now, water temp is 21.5 which is higher than usual for the time of year. Never seen so many red cod either
