Hamilton Zoo Cheeky Monkey!

Not much fishing going on-- still a bit windy but in the next few weeks the water will get warmer and the bait fish will arrive along with all those Kingfish at my spot!  In the mean time.. when not working... a trip to the zoo... have repaired my fences, painted them along with the roof.. A new set of gates to make as I tidy up and re-vamp the house.

Mount Maunganui Beach

Another COLD day... check out the flat sea! Perfect for a fish if it wasn't windy... nice walk along the beach and then to the Hot Pools.

Mount Maunganui Walk at the entrance

A very windy and cold day today... went for a walk at the Mount and snapped off a couple of photos including Denise on the rope swing at the waters edge.

Mount Maunganui Orca in the harbour

Wow, 3 Orca in the harbour this morning. Perfect timing to bring my camera with me! To see the massive dorsal fin out of the water in the shallows was a great site. It was worth taking a day out from job searching :-)

Mount Maunganui from the harbour

What a fantastic day... took the Atomix for a spin and decided to bring my camera and take some photos. Nice swells out the entrance.. always fun riding over these! and flat calm in the harbour.

Carmichael Reserve Tauranga

Went out for a fish with Matt on Saturday but got a bit windy and not able to drift with Softbaits. Did jig a KIngfish- but with water temp now 14 they have pretty much gone. Matt did get a snapper and a few other fish. After Church went for a walk around Carmichael Reserve... a great place to bike and go for a run as well.

McLaren Falls Park

Not been out fishing as much... weather had been too rough on the weekends... but of course flat as Monday to Friday most of the time! :-) Went for a 9km run and then off for a walk around McLaren Falls with Denise after. Decided to take my camera as it has been a long time since I have taken any photos!

Fishing from the Atomix 420

It's been a long time since I took my camera out taking photos... My blog is turning into fish photos.. oh well...maybe this year I get back to my camera. Weather has been pretty rough with up to 3 mtr swells. The Atomix handles so well in rough seas!
Been getting a few KingFish each time I head out-- have a good spot about 5 and a half miles out which this year is holding KingFish from 70cm to 95cm.. and will get between 5 and 10 each morning on Jigs. Man what a work out!!  This year only on Pink jigs.. very strange.
Sounder broke a few weeks ago but the new one is great showing the schools of bait fish well to jig into.
Had a couple of good battles with sharks with a massive Bronze Whaler jumping right out of the water very close to the boat! The Marco Sharks look great swimming around the boat.. the big Bronze Whalers are a bit scary when your in a small boat lol
