    Time to Chill

    Have sold quite a bit of Art lately, so I can afford to employ the Son to cover for me at work. Time go fishing, diving and Surfing. Starting today at 1500hrs, I have the next 7 days off. Was going to head up to the Parengarenga harbour but because of the lost time in travel 9hrs each way. My best mate of 45yrs and I, have decided to got to my Bach on the Coromandel and partake in some out door pursuits. The main plan is to fish for XOS Kingies at Castle rock with the odd bottom fish, Cray and scallop dive in between. If the weather is not to Flash on one side we will target the lee side which ever may be the case. If it's not to flash either side we will Surf and Chill out at some form of refreshment Kiosk. If the weather goes complete crap then I will come back home and pick up the Dog and rifle and head out on to some spring grasses across the lake. Roll on 1500hrs. Will report when I have returned.

    All power to your right arm GA regardless of whether it holds rod, or rifle.
    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

    Did I tell you I make a nice cup of tea? I have also been told more than once, I am only good for ballast. Do you need any extra?
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Fishing out of Raglan is fucking mental at the moment. Looking at swell map its the better option too.

    We did Fri, Sat and Sun last week. Limits in an hour on all three days. Nothing under 5 pounds. First fish on board on Sunday was 26lbs

    That would have put a smile on your dial.

    Truthfully, it was less than ideal. The Icebreaker tournament only ran on Fri and Sat, Sun was just for fun.

    And they are a pain in the arse to fillet when they get that big.
