Seemed to have one of those missions where things do not quite go to plan, like finding you've forgotten to bring a lighter for the gas cooker, having a water bottle leak in the back of the wagon making the carpet damp which released a distinct dog or cat pee odour, picking the old owner of the car used it to keep dogs in, getting a flat car battery, needing a call out to get jump started, discovering said battery is 8 years old and not worth it, putting on my waders and finding a new hole in the boot...
The actual fishing wasn't much better, Kahawai and coutta at Whakaki, I'm surprised the kahawai had any room in their mouths to take a bait, they all had a mouthfull of whitebait, which would have accumulated enough for a couple of fritters if you were that way inclined.
Shot over to Snapper rock Thursday afternoon, managed 1 gurnard for the time I was there.
Had one good take after midnight at Whakaki which ran for a while before spitting the hook, species unknown
Worth the gas? Well I had already decided before starting this thread I'd go as it will be my last for some time as some of you know, so in terms of enjoyment, yes it was worth the gas, in terms of fish caught, no.
