A personal best for one fisho!

What a beautiful day out here on the Hauraki Gulf.  We had four fishing on board the boat today, with beautiful calm seas to start with – we definitely needed the sunblock and hats!

Yet again, the Hen and Chicks came up with the goods and we had a lot of fun catching a good variety of fish. In the chilly bin today – snapper, big ocean-going kahawai and a couple of good trevally. The wives were happy and there was plenty for all in the divvy up. First on the menu, thinly sliced raw trevally – yum!

Most importantly, one of the local lads caught his personal best – a 15lb snapper. As you can see in the photo, the cloud cover had started to come in and the sea was chopping up a little bit but conditions were still perfectly pleasant. As you can imagine, this fish was a lot of fun to bring in and the arms were tired from the huge number of photos we took.
