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.

The pocket battleships rock & roll.  Well done those blokes.
Nobody has ever come up with a great idea after a second bottle of water.

Thats a cool report.....way to slay it guys
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Nice work team!

Good to see the little boats out there and doing it.

I saw an old dude last weekend beach launch from papamoa come out to us about 2.5km out then slay the fishes, as we were for 30mins then head home presumably with close to a limit bag.

well done to the"twelves".
The pic of "Cowboy" hanging on to the bow is a beauty.
 
"UGLIA" is a special wee boat, Keith has spent many hours fitting all sorts of bit's & peices to make her a mean fishing machine.
How's the VHF aerial Keith?LOL

Hi Uncle. The VHF aerial is holding together well with some aluminium tape compliments of a friend who works on aircraft. More importantly, the radio still works fine! I am getting good at creating issues for myself these days. Lost a drogue today as well - fortunately I could watch it sink so it doesn't cause a disaster for someone else!!

Hi Keith - great report.  We'll keep you on for the next 12' regatta.  The Windguru forecast for next Saturday is for high winds, so I won't be planning to go out unless the forecast changes.
 
I'll post the plans for the next meeting on this thread, so Fred Onion, Aquacat, Silver1, keep watching this for updates.  I will also send PMs and texts to people who want to join in.  Of course anyone else who wants to plan a meeting, go right ahead and I'll be there if I can.

Yes, Thurs/Fri could be good for a sneaky one.  With light - moderate southerlies both days (Windguru) a Kohi launch would be OK, but would have to stop fishing at 7 am Thurs and 7:45 Fri to avoid being stranded.

I'd be keen to do a Sergeants channel meet sometime soon.  Watch this thread, or send me a PM with your mobile # & I'll keep you posted.
