Just got back from an overnighter at Kaikoura …..
Got there lunch time , was dead for the first 6 hrs , nothing but 4 schoolies and 1 carpet shark with a combined weight of less than 1/2 lb … 6.20pm saw a 15lb schoolie ……a dogfish , then another schoolie around 30lb at 8.30pm ….I packed up after that and got an early night ..
Come morning – 2 carpet sharks , 1 kahawai , 2 small schoolies , 2 skate and 3 gurnard ….oh , and 3 doggies …

So a successful trip for a change …

Edited to add , Do gurnard puke their stomachs empty when hooked ?? cause I just filleted the buggers and all 3 were empty , all 3 full of row tho ….
Maybe they are breeding at the mo
