    Yep, I'm going out. Forecast not great for the ski, but think I can find some sheltered water. Report to follow.

    Report as promised. Late start for me. At the ramp at 6am. Blame the vomiting 3 year old, poor little guy! As predicted, not exactly jetski friendly conditions, but doable, so stayed in close. It wasn't a bad decision as I got the bag limit in about an hour, nothing big, but a good Christmas feed. Back home by 0930.

    Redemption day!
    Pengy took the risk and came fishing with me again , after our last tragic tale , I considered him a very braves man !!!

    Away on sat arvo with the @Pengy got to okiwi it was flat arse calm, so hooked up the boat and shot out for an evening fish. Few gurnard and couple of codstill the snapper remain up the coast! In by 930 beer tucker bed! Up earlyish down the coast, dropped the hook line out deep and then steamed for an old haunt I hadn't visited for a year or three.

    The weather eased as the tide turned and ran with the breeze, then the green machine being a great fishing buddy that he is started to summon the fish Ralph he yelled, Hue he called, Boris he spluttered!

    So we set to fishing with the cod savageing everything we dropped in the water! @Pengy showed good form dropping line weights to match the clear conditions, the couta appreciated his efforts and nipped of his hooks one at a time! I went with something more substantial but struggled to boat anything legal, with a run of small brim and frustratingly just undersized cod! Pengy brought out the big guns and dug deep into his tackle bag and brought out some sparkly worms all the way from his other home land and boated the cod of the day!

    With our limit of two cod each secured, we moved down the coast to a cray rock! As luck would have it I managed to hit it bang on! Down the side left around a bit found the hole and some nice crays! Even better I managed to grab 3 out of the 4 I hit! Bloody supprised myself!

    Up to the surface 15 mins bottom time in total! Pengy picked me up and we headed for the hook line pulled five fat carrots plus a couple of token spikies! Weather was kicking up again so Pengy headed us for home!

    A great way to ease the Xmas craziness , cheers Pengy for taking the shit I gave you, and for being a champion boatman and keeping me safe!
    Nil durum volenti !!

    Out Sunday for a fish with @Munsey around south bay and dropped some cray pots.
    Did well on Blue cod and perch and a big kahawai and cuda when the sun drove me back in.


    We had a surfcast in the evening but a cuda and spiky dog were all that was managed.



    Out this morning to check pots and secured xmas lunch.
