Yepp, today is my 33rd wedding anniversary (I think) so I'm going to celebrate by going deer shooting and when I get back I'm out over the west coast for a snapper fish. My wife doesn't do any of those things so I'm hoping she will appreciate the peace and quiet. I wonder if I should have told her Ermm

Oh well she will figure that out when she sees the the boat has gone. Anyway it's nearly 5am so I better head off to the hills.

Awesome smudge is that how you stayed married soo long. Just do whatever you want 😁 I'll divide your 33 by 3. Today is our 11th anniversary and I'm out with the family. Would rather be shooting and fishing though.
Why choose either diving or fishing when you can do both. Besides crayfish tail is very good bait!!

The oldest joke, professor tried to engage a somnolent lecture hall in a physiology lecture by asking, "What is your arsehole doing when you orgasm". 
Young lady immediately replied, "normally fishing".
Cranked up 34, my father never warned me of the consequences, just chuckled at the church. Rediscovered fishing.

...& was it worthy of absconding on such an auspicious occasion?

Hehe good to see that received in the way it was intended. Yes I did go deer shooting but my son Arron carried the rifle. We saw 13 and he took one shot, his first at anything other than a target. He missed a sitter at 70m but good fun. On the water at 9.30 to 42m, first drop a little 35cm snapper on the baku baku. It took another 30 minutes to catch the next two. We went to 50m.  another two or three in the bin and a big tope. No great whites today. Another 30mins and out to blue water at 60m. The fish were bigger. They were very shy on the bite and only smallish. When we hooked one, typically all 3 of us would hook up.

Oh yeah I left my tackle box at home. The skipper left his ph in the suv and our fishfinder/chartplotter didn't work. We figured the depth using rainbow braid.

30 snapper, 3 gurnard and one shark on a stunning day with no discernible swell and no chop. One of those stunning days.

Now I'm sitting down having a Len Brown or four and my wife is enjoying a wine with her friend and Arron is cooking up some whole snapper for our dinner. He's up again at 4.30 to carry the rifle for my mate. I'm having a sleep in.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. It takes a special kind of guy to live this life 

Big smile

Finally a useful tool there Smudge.

Bit disappointed on your care,of your squeeze.

Makes me look bad.
Did my 38 th two weeks ago.
Seems no parole for me on the horizon.

Can't remember the last time I was west.

Looks like your offspring could be useful.
I hope you set the rules of catch percentages relative to years raised.

Could be a win for you.
