Isn't Rat Island AKA Tapu te Ranga? AKA part of the South Coast Marine Reserve?

220mm Paua is a monster - sell the shell and pay off your mortgage.

Had a swim near the boatramp round from moa point (no idea of the name). Followed the weedline round the bay down to 7-8m. First dive it was clear that 1. I'm seriously underweighted and was like a bobbing cork and 2. that my cold from last week has not cleared out since I couldn't equalise properly. GREAT. Swam round on the surface and saw a tiny cod who wanted to eat my flopper in the shallows and a small blue moki. No other life seen at all, area didn't look promising so close in, next time will get out deeper.

Vis should be good, a while since the last southerly, some calm days, northerly forecast tomorrow. I will be out in the morning. High tide for wellington 2.10pm, I'd imagine the salps will be around as well.

I didn't grab it, as it is a reserve. I found the paua by chance, there was no indication of a 'nest' and it seemed to be only one around (that's probably why it survived this long).
O.k. before I receive more grilling, I couldn't get my tapemeasure out (?), so I used bodyparts (!) and 22cm was the minimum Big%20smile length! No seriously - it was the extended length from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my middle finger and this turned out to be 22cm.
I know it sound odd and the max length is supposed to be 19 but I believe in 8kg Crays as well.

2 cent.

You get harrassed by the seals? Did you dive north or south of Ngawi?
