Fish #2 hit well off to the side of the marker and dived deep fast. A good fight ensued before he was decked.
Fish # 3 dealt to me. One second it was all good, the next I was hanging on as the Tibor wailed its drag growwwllllllllllllllll. Booofah, all over.
I headed over to the channel to see about a snap. Inkichu down first, followed by softbait, that rod went into the holder. The inkichu got hit and I caught and released a reasonable snap. The next hit was better, lots of string being pulled. After a good fight I caught this guy.
Then my second act of muppetry. The channel is intersected by a long reef structure and goes from approx 50 feet deep to 18 feet. Leave your jig in rod holder on a long line and.... well, that's 2 inkichus lost this week. $60. Sheeet!!!
Anyhow I fished 4 or 5 drifts before TT turned up with his mate Bob, I think his name was. We drifted together for a while and boated another couple.
After a while I headed back to the marker, but couldn't get any follows on the fly. So I waved adios to the others and headed back to Rangi Channel. Lost a fish and fly on number 13 marker. Another boat was jigging the markers so I headed to Rough Rock. No one home.
Back to Torpedo Bay, home by 12.
Weather was perfect, all day. Now its back to work time..... have had a great holiday, plenty of fishing, lots of relaxation. Corporate bollox....
