    Got a choice snapper a little while ago

    Got this big bastard out from snells beach (north of Auckland, out by Warkworth). Tipped the scales at just under 10lb



    They weren't all big though



    Ended up getting a half dozen other keepers too.

    Well done. Good fish. I hope you changed the nap pies on the small one and sent it back to its mum.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Mostly just snapper. Sometimes get a few kawhai or a kingie. No way near as common as the snappers though.
    The whole day we were just pulling up small one after small one. We ended up with about 6 keepers between us. Started throwing the keepers back after that as we had enough for a feed... until the big guy came along. Had to keep him.

    Nah I think the last one I caught was out at kawakawa bay. Been a long time though. I only get to go out 5-6 times a year.

    The old man has only recently trusted me with the keys to the boat so it's always been trying to fit around his work in the past. Now that's not an issue.
