Went out today rough as guts out the front went by the old woman, the anchor couldn't hold ground , so I moved & lost the bloody thing cut it off on the prop.
Headed back in to the harbor tied off to a green marker pass marston point, caught over 14 Kahawai, 4 Gurnard & supprise supprise landed two Snappers one at 54cm the other at 45.....
Got my bag limit of 20 with in 4hrs, the tide was the last 2hrs out going and 1hr in when I caught the bulk of the fish.

Dave, she was pretty rough outside by all accounts... but hey we'd never seen as many fish in a long while. Three mile reef was firing, Guano rock produced a 14kg kingi and 22lb snapper.... one boat had three fisho on it and they had their quota of fin fish and snapper. 27 snapper and they were all over 12lbs the fin fish consited of terries and kahawai ... a great haul for three fishos.... the best was a guy who said hey I only got a couple...... he had two ladies with him... and someone said hey mate  if you take out the ladies sometimes the fishing isn't great.... well he showed us these two fish. one was a kingi around 16kgs and the other was a snapper around 10kgs.... he was smiling.... but the crazy thing was that his missuss caught both the fish.... we had to eat our words..... Saturday was huge everyone had their quota... a great day had by all.... Waving SBThumbs Up

The local weather station is saying 35 Km/h Southerly at the moment and it is supposed to die away in moring and turn Northerly and rise to 15 Km/h in the arvo...

We hope to be out there in the morning, some say good snapper off the Power Station and 3 mile reef area and Trevs off the Marsden Pt wharf...so heres hoping
