the orcas were just to the right of french bay probably 3 to 4 km out looked like they were after the stingrays or something but there must have been around 7 or 8 of them we had a quick look at them on our way over to the fishing spot.

Plenty of sharks with teeth sharp enough to slice through trace in there as well.

while typing above post could hear distant duck sounds. Then i hear wife going bonkers ,loud duck sounds. In short a pair of wild ducks had wandered in the french doors and had gone through the lounge and were standing in front of the fridge. Think it is the same pair that were here last spring eating bread put out for the birds.But they hadnt learned to do this.How would they know about fridges & food.? Hard case.

Made  a very last minute decision on for a fish saturday afternoon. Launched little Huia 2 hours before low. First & only gurnard before low. Tried in the deep channel at low water for nothing-not even a bite. Went shallow for begining of incoming. Lost a gurnard at boat. Also hooked something,gurnard like bite, line slackened a bit. Took weight,fish on ,fish gone.Didnt feel overly heavy. Trace ,everything gone. This has happened a few times on the muddy. What fish would do that.
To me has been a hard season,numbers seem down. Also this time of year fish are getting roed up.
This year only one with roe. Others no sign. This is different than other years. Is it possibly a late spawn.

It was snotty on Saturday butSunday was a lot better.

I didn't see the Orcas but most years they come for a play in the harbour.

11210 - they are HUGE gurnard, we had a tough time finding them but ended up with 9 for the two days, all pretty fat between 700g and a kilo.

A couple of spiny dogfish turned up too

But the harbour is absolutely full of these
