    Google say El NiŮo , certainly an interesting pattern of weather ..blue cod are well off the bite, nothing large from the Glen to Stephens on the bite ...this weekend and the last two I have spoken to a number of fishers and being one myself that was plagued by small / undersize cod , a work mate was a Stephens on Monday , no snapper kingi's or Hapuka , and the cod were very average!

    I just know its a barstard in the flounder net.....not enough rough weather of late to rip it off? Water temps still around 11-12deg so it hasnt warmed significantly yet....Maybe its a daylight hours thing?

    It's magic shit for your garden, my old man gathers it after storms, then leaves it on decking down in the garden for a couple of showers, then parks it on the garden.

    I reckon it could be seaweed. Just a theory given the close proximity of the sea.
    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
