Size doesn't matter - it is all a matter of technique as the little guys showed out East this morning. As usual Far Quirk (Geoff) went the extra mile by way of his posts and organisation and although the little guys only have 12' or thereabouts, all were adequately satisfied.
I started the hard way. After downloading Uglia onto the sand (note one pontoon in the air) and waiting another half hour for some more water, I stupidly carved my own channel out from Kohi ramp to then have to clean the water intake.
Caught up with Far Quirk in the his 355 Dart using SPs in the Motuihe Channel
And Aquacat and his mate, "Cowboy" hooning back to the Northern ferry lane marker
So, there were three fishing.net littlies out there getting a feed, staying quite close together
I personally got an ample feed with 6 between 35 & 47 in my 2 and a bit hours
And as Geoff (Far Quirk) has posted elsewhere he got a feed, but these two did exceptionally well catching heaps more than Geoff and I.
It was great to see the crew on the wee craft wearing lifejackets.
For the record, the Nuke, Saphire, and 2 or three others each caught fish. Strangely, about 8 of my SPs got totally munted this morning without catching fish. I stopped at Browns and used the smelly stuff for a while on the way home and all it produced was undersize. Seemed the boat alongside me was doing likewise on smellies.
