Headed down the coast for a fish last night, cold wind was blowing which made the sea a bit rough. Decided to take a walk to see if things would calm down. 100m down the beach I noticed a orange flag 250m from the shore. Quickly figured out a kontinki (looked like a expensive one) had gotten snagged out there. After watching it for half a hour the wind had not died down so explored access ways into the Awatere river instead, I suspect shortly after the wind did drop Checked on the kontiki again just before dark and it was still there. Upon leaving saw a couple of guys looking at it, suspect they might of been the owners. Wonder if it still out there bobbing away. Probably a massive tangle of Doggies, Red cod and Skate on the line now.
