    Kaikoura was kind to us, weather settled and we got 14 hours in the water.

    Vis was limited and we could only dive south kiaks as north was murky. If anyone knows a George Hom????? down that way tell him his stuck pot at the the bird reserve is/was cleared. The contact number on the bouy didn't work? (normal size white bouy with what looked like a setnet float as the other. Pot was reqtangular bout 1m long 600 wide had one very dead cray in it.) I have dragged it as far clear of the rock as I could and cut the kelp around line to free it but the next blow will see it on the rocks or back in the kelp.

    edit to clear up any confusion. I dont dive pots. the pot in question was caught in a hole I was diving with it's bouy line wrapped in the kelp and underwater at mid tide.

    We covered alot of turf and between us shot some very good butters, one Moki, and caught up with some crays. The crays were thin on the ground.Whilst we had a very good result we worked very hard for them. The over all size was better though.

    I didn't get out to Sharks tooth Munsey would still be keen for a look though, will bring some tanks though, after the effort to get the one we sorted down the coast freediving it would be 100% easier.The company was great and our diving improved all weekend, shows what time on the job can do for you.

    The laugh of the trip was watching a tourist trying to photograph a dirty great bull seal, it went like this.

    1) walk over beach with camera.
    2) find seal asleep / sunning himself
    3) set up for shot
    4) seal will not sit up for said shot or respond to verbal commands so throw stones at seal. (I am dead serious)
    5) Run like F#*K as said seal reacts to being stoned. Them tourists / seals are suprisingly fast.
    6) give 3 divers in fits of laughter a mouthful (had no idea what she said) but her face said it all ...Priceless!!

    we got 14 crays, 7 butters , 4 paua ,8 kina and a moki. Not many of us enjoy paua so I took a feed for myself and the old boy who also loves his Kina.
