After about a 40 min ride we reached the point where Rob said there was good fishing - he was expecting there to be mainly blue cod there, which I thought was good - everything that we caught we were gonna eat that night (as long as it was big enough)....
We each had some luck in catching the cod, but it was all too small. Until I got the first one that finally made the grade and was big enough to keep! Yay!! I was surprised at how much fun I had fishing - the only thing I found tough was holding onto the fish long enough to be able to take the hook out; especially when the hook was through the fish eyes, that was disgusting and there was no way I was gonna do that! We caught another type of fish besides the blue cod - red gurnard. Bizarre things these we, orange coloured and with some weird defensive things that come out when you try to grab them..
Check out this link for a piccie of one:
Then check this one out for the weird defense thing:
The day was heaps of fun, and eating the fish afterwards was delicious - the gurnard were well tasty! We had them breadcrumbed and then barbequed with some kumara too - delicious!
