Got Back from a few days up in the marlbourgh sounds. Blue Cod, leather jacket, snapper, mackral, skate and Kaiwahi caught.
It was my first snapper, only 29cm long but still my happy about it. Only snapper being caught that i saw/heard about in any great numbers or size are off longlines. Also caught my first rat king, we had a couple swimming around our boat chasing everything we brought up.
Had hoped to fish Kaikoura on the way up and back but both times the weather wasnt playing the game.
