    Surfcasting off Pukehina

    We just got back from an afternoon evening fish off Pukehina and had a bit of success. Fishing has been good and the last three times out have netted fish, a couple of nice snapper in the 43 cm range.
    Just on the change of light to night I hooked a nice eater (43 CM) and with a few small Kawhai have enough for a good meal. It was a perfect evening the sea was all but flat with little wind and not to cold.
    just as we packed up and I wound in my line I realized I had a fish on and and it felt as good as the one I had caught but as he came into the breakers ( what breakers there were)
    he got off, damn the one that got away.
    Have to go back for another go soon especially when the conditions are like they were today.Name:  Sunset .JPG

    I put a bathroom and a septic tank system 30yrs ago on a block on the right just as you hit Pukehina Parade. Maori land as I did it for Ngawhika's.
