hey milli wheres all your snaps at??not as much action from you as there normally is….finally got my shit together and went for a moki fish this morning..got to my special spot at 5am..decided to fish two rods one with prawn the other with mussel/tuatua..i normally only fish one but wanted to maximise my chances being the first trip for the season…first cast got a bastard red cod on prawn..was plenty of pickers probably mullet picking at the baits..then my other rod went over and a scrappy little moki was landed on mussel..rebaited and landed a dirty old wrasse..released him and casted back out..two minutes later and another nice wee scrapper was landed on tuatua..2 fish is enough so i packed up and headed home at 6.20am.mussel and tuatua were getting constant attention while prawn was largely ignored..1st fish was 40cm second was 42cm 3.2 and 3.5 lb..i prefer the just legal ones as they tast the best..had herb crumbed pan fried moki for lunch..its a tough life..
