A Damn good day out at Te Oka Bay, after a 4k paddle Ollie had us fishing over his trumpeter spotx.
Ollie anchored and clipped onto his yak burley was deployed and the fishing exploded fantastic to catch so much fish alot was under size but the action never died.
A couple of big conger eels and Ollie had one at the surface that was at least 5ft long 200mm thick looked like a serpent.
I hooked onto something really big and thought i was winning the fight when oops we are getting towed, I wish that I had unclipped from Ollies yak and worn the fish out but instead I let it take about 40-50mtrs of 25lb line and ping that was it, you learn from your mistakes.18/05/2009 at 8:48 pm #13231

Cool looking coastline. Must get down there one day.30/05/2009 at 12:14 pm #13252rdeejayParticipant
Hey bro wassup with the low res pics eh lol30/05/2009 at 10:21 pm #13253
3 different camera’s and pain that you have to edit them to under 265kbs,
I am waiting for some more pic’s from the boys over the coast of shots on the water.
Our biggest problem is that we get out on the water and the fishing goes off no-one wants to stop fishing and take pic’s.
Totally different than being on the shore,If I could afford one of those flash helmet camera’s and video well that’s another story lol.
We are having a slide show on this Thursday 4th June at our next meeting.31/05/2009 at 2:05 am #13255rdeejayParticipant
Sign up to a pic hosting site and upload there, then you can just add a thumbnail which links to bigger versions and saves resizing like i do with my pics.
A good catch anyway and a good feed i bet.
