A quieter week for us. Thursday's trip was a no win situation, the Met service was saying 25+knots, which looked as though it might be late coming, but if we went it would blow, and if we cancelled it'd be late. So I canned, and of course it was late. Murphy's Law in action, again.

Saturday was a good day though. We went to the Pinns, and had a good selection come up, snapper, tarakihi, and a couple of good kingies, courtesy of the man with the jigging rod. There were quite a lot of undersize[kingies] caught as well, a common sight in the last year or two.

The current was really severe though, becoming almost unfishable, so we went back to the 12mile, where there was no current apparent, and finished off the day with quite a lot of trevally and more snapper.

A pity that our Sunday charter cancelled on us.
