Went up to the sounds for the long weekend.
French pass on friday – Blue cod, kahawai, plague of spotties, no snaps no kingfish. But a pod of orcas went through the pass within casting distance Damn cool to watch them buggers up close. We had 3 kahawai out under balloons at the time.. Anyone landed an orca???
Headed to the wharf once it got darker. Got a sole and a way too many carpet sharks.
Titirangi on saturday – Went for a snorkel. Seen tarakihi, kahawai, a ray and a huge conger.
Put out some baits and got a couple of snaps, blue cod, kahawai, tarakihi, and another plague of carpet sharks..
Went to Kenepuru for a cast today (sunday) got a couple of rays, snaps, trevally, and kahawai
So a pretty good weekend in the end. Stink of fish, lacking sleep, just got back to chch
