    I had a bit of an inspection of the stomach contents of those snapper.

    The usual...



    No matter if these fish are caught in the shallow or deep water they always seem to have crabs in their diet. Although some of today's ones look to be a hermit crab of some sort.

    The unusual....



    Looks to be a small scollop. This is a good sign for us here in tasman bay as our scollop fishery has had a hiding from all angles over the last few years. So @veitnamcam not only are they washing up on the beach at tahuna....the snapper are eating them!

    Would make sense that they eat the smaller ones I guess....they'd probably have more trouble with the shell by time they are legal size tho I recon.

    Took Tinny punt for a run as she hadn't been out for a while.
    Quick hour or so fish up to the top of the tide in the blind channel.



    Nothin big in there but the shortest fish is 31cm a few other pannies caught but released as a bit smaller and had no measure on the boat also a few more small Trevally released.



    Not bad going really for about a cup of premix.

    Dad was keen to get out this morning having heard plenty of snapper storys of late and @kukuwai had given me some good intelligence on the whereabouts of some closer fish so Dad picked me up on the way past.

    Deployed a longline then moved off and burlyed up....it was slow fishing for a start but at least we were not being inundated with shit fish.
    Finally one of the straylines took off and a nice snapper was boated.
    Dad and Uncle both caught and lost snapper on the flasher rigs (rod holder caught hook not set)
    A few gurnard and a xxl kahawai and then another nice snap on the strayline.
    A few snakes and sharks showed up and then we were out of burly.
    Picked up longline for some nice snaps and obligatory sharks and lost one good snapper as it broke the shitty old trace
    It should be fine it was only shallow and hooked corner mouth.

    Dropped the silicon tube which took the whole end off it, so used plenty to get a good signal through the hull.

    Works as long as there are no or very few air bubbles in either the silicone or plastic hull. Same for fibreglass hulls but don't work thru alloy or steel, nor foam core/fibreglass
    Technical term is "shoot thu" installation

    Hence the heaps of goo, was going in the rubbish afterwards anyway.

    Next mission is to work out a battery holder in the hull. Not many glues are overly successful on hdpe so might weld something in.

    Getting a good earth is the tricky bit.
