Pictures of the Week 7

My mate Paul from England is visiting and we’ve been fishing 5 days in a row. The ‘quick fishing’ or as he calls it ‘pleasure fishing’ was as it should be on Great Barrier Island; catch a good feed of snapper and kahawai in less than an hour and pack in. We targeted kingfish twice and were successful both times. Detailed reports to follow. Enjoy the pictures of the week.

I believe this is a pink Maomao. For some reason in shallow water. Spotted at Tryphena Wharf
