    Surfcasting in the Kaipara

    Took a mate to the mighty Kaipara for asurfcast last evening. He did OK with a 12lb, 8lb, and we think about 2lb snapper. I couldn't wipe the grin off his mug for hours.

    Well done. Was that off Shelly Beach?
    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

    Nice! I've camped on that island out from the Hoteo river, 'Moturemu' I think it's called or simply Rat island. We just cast off the island into the channel, have caught some monsters there. Was good fun. (By camped I mean slept in a sleeping bag on top of a pallet we found and some other drift wood. luckily the weather was on our side)

    I've also done plenty of fishing on the Kaipara and all the way over in Kawau bay, both those places have supreme fishing.
