    Nice day, any kingfish? off the glen yet. used to do a bit of fishing and diving there years ago.
    its a windy growly, day in Taranaki, loaded boat last night, for an early morning snapper fish, trees were thrashing about at 5:00, so flagged it.

    Wish I had seen it earlier too. I could have gone and grabbed a coffee at the landlords place and watched you getting wet and cold from the beach

    Or we could have towed some big ass lures around just to keep the divers on their toes

    Some signs of life ..vis was ok down to 20ft then hit the murk layer. Going again tomorrow after work will be there about 530pm. Wind should drop about that time of day.

    VC got a spare belt plus weight enough to sink ya and will get the lad to bring his spare harpoon. Txt to confirm dive about 430 and post here.

    Was up in Whangaroa harbour,just had a yatchet race from BOI,went over the side to get a feed,bugger steams in past Peach Island and dumped his dredge,obviously a yacht is only flying a dive flag for looks.
    And no it's long gone
