Gas is one of the worst things about fishing…. I have had a bit of annual leave and have been filling my truck every 2nd day lately…. Going to need full her again tomorrow.
Contemplating going to French pass tomorrow which would use another 1/2 tank… or $35 worth of gas. One good thing about the price of fuel is that it is good justification to buy expensive tackle… For example a brand new Surfcasting reel is now only 5 tanks of fuel or a fish finder for the yak is only 4 tanks. My new tramping pack was only 2.5 tanks of fuel.
If the weather looks marginal I might head down to Kaikouria instead.
