    Nice pics there Aaron! Good to see the event was well covered! Definitly have to do a trip like that again, im possibly up to kaikoura in Larbour weeked, so will probably give that railway beach another crack.

    And about me being a lazy fisherman, well I enjoy sitting down listeing to the beach watching my rod and……… well making new rigs after I lose them to snags!! :P

    Looks Like you guys had a blast, unfortunately I had 2 kids birthdays to go to and couldn’t get a pass given it was fathers day on sunday. Will definitely be keen for the next trip.

    Did manage to get out for a bit of a fish, caught a mullet of around a pound at the mouth of the waimak.

    Had the Kaiwhai for tea tonight, was great tasting! Crumbed and pan fried, then with lemon juice. Fantastic. Looking forward to more Kaiwhai! My filleting skills need some improvement however.

    Cheers

    Just wondering, did you bleed the Kahawai Aaron? I havn’t had Kahawai that many times. I usually just use them for bait. I also need to improve my filleting skills. If I try to fillet a smaller sized kahawai I usually stuff it up and end up with nothing.

    usually u bleed kaiwhai and also i believe gitting them almost as soon at you catch them really improves the fish as well
