A full day out fishing with a crew change at half time made for a great day’s fishing for this group of 9 people. We headed out to the Hen & Chickens early in the morning and the party was in full swing pretty quickly. Everyone was busy landing snapper, mostly pannies, with a few kingis thrown in. Unfortunately the kingis were just under legal size so we took great pleasure in releasing them to fight another day. The afternoon crew were just as busy and managed to land a few larger snapper, so the sausages would have stayed in the fridge for a few more days.
The swell got up a bit for a while there, but the hen provided good shelter and all on board enjoyed the day. All in all a great day out.
