Looks like a sweet rig bro!  Makes me half wished I lived in Auck so I could justify buying/building a boat like that.

Iv just bough myself an Aluminium Mig welder with the intent of building a jet sled for accessing the bigger rivers around here.  Should be getting into that come next year.

Haha nice. It was a consolation price for me as pulled out of aitutaki land purchase, Corona virus and effected tourism was the final straw. Gonna have to make that auck fishery work for me :) If your ever in Auck your sorted.

Yea always blows me away as to how good a fishery that there is so close to the huge city that is Auckland.  The harbor sure cops a flogging, but just seems to keep producing despite that. 

Imagine what the place would be like is firm restrictions on bag takes were imposed?  wowwwwwShocked

Well yes and no Adam.  All the tourist are gone and that is something like 80% of the trout fishing pressure.  So even if every resident trout angler went at it over the next few weeks, I'm pretty sure it will still be quiet on the rivers.  

I'm planning to jump in our campervan later this week and disappear into Southland for a fish.  As soon as my work dries up, I'm off.  We shot south on the weekend and it was deathly quiet.  Only saw 2 other cars in nearly 2 hrs of driving.   A return to pre-tourism in Southland! Shocked

Pity trout don't taste like snapper, or else id be keeping a few. Disapprove

You wont be disappointed with your choice of motor. I have exactly the same one on an FC560 C/C and there is so much grunt and power with this motor. Its pretty economical too.

Yup even fish and game has made it clear no fishing and hunting.  We will have to make the most of the weather if this is even lifted after 4 weeks. Not much nice weather will be left after that before it's cold, rains all the time and the wind blows for the next 6 months.

Well there goes my planCry

Might be able to fish some of the rivers close to home with any luck, but will have to be careful.  Planning on now spending a lot of time on both my road and mountain bike.  Make the best of a bad situation and I'm going to see how fit I can get in 1 month?  If this think kicks on longer than 1 month I might end up looking like Arnold SchwarzeneggerLOLLOL
