I did 3-4 hours of fishing in the Kenepuru but caught nothing, used pilchard, prawn and plastic for bait.
My original plan was to go to Okiwi and do a kayak mission but there was a cold wind, and my water bladder leaked in the car so I had nothing to drink on the big paddle which would be required. So I decided to head for home, while driving through havelock I noticed how calm it was and decided to take advantage of the distance I already driven and headed towards the kenepuru, I was hoping to find clean water sooner but that was not to be.
I did notice the fuel use, but diesel has drop quite a bit in the last few weeks and I have not done many long distance trips so was not much of a issue. If is around $2/L during the summer it would be a worry.
