Was at the Mak mouth yesterday afternoon just before low tide. Went into surf to get Kawhai & after 10 or so minutes was into a nice Kawhai. While playing it I notived a dark object swimming toward me in waist deep water… On second inspection it was a Salmon of atleast 20lbs, Only about a couple of metres from me and swimming very slowly, I follwed it while playing the Kawhai still and yelled out to a fella fishing below me, It swam pretty much into him.. Got a fright and then swam toward me and I just about grabbed it with one hand… Was very very dark and sick looking, It then swam back slowly toward river & I managed to land my Kawhai… Good times!!!
