My good mate Skoti can't make this trip so we're looking for another fisher. It's not cheap, but I guess $700 will cover the weekend. You need to be available for a 4 or 5 day window and it is with Aaron Sergeant aboard Coastal Fishing Charters.

I have only done this once before but easily the best trip I have done, and I have had some pretty cool adventures!

You need to have a sense of humour, and you need to be sea worthy.

Wayno, are you in? If not, who is keen?

Excellent! Anyone keen to be a standby in case someone drops out? Pretty keen group of us but last year one guy couldn't go because of a medical problem, was no problem filling the spot.

I should have clarified, it is a one day trip, we have to be prepared to go on whatever of those days the skipper (Arron Sargeant) deems best.

Are there any isolation or distancing pandemic conditions that will apply ?
Most of us have to tighten our spending in the face of impending rampant inflation. One forum member was training his pet budgie to go without food when the little bugger died !!

I will not post them here due to my overwhelming respect for you Smudge.
But I think they may be on page 168 of Caption This.

OK, that is indeed some overwhelming respect Kitno. Six people may be leaving Hicks Bay, but how many will come back? Wink

I've now got 3 on standby, thanks guys. I'll keep in touch & let you know if there's a likelihood of a trip. In all reality, someone always has to drop out for some reason or another, more so in these times. Good luck guys but at this stage we have a full crew: Kitno, Arron, Mars, Rumbold (not a forum member but one of the originals last year who had to withdraw for medical reasons), Wayno & myself.
