Well its mid November and I haven’t managed to catch a fish in the last 6 outings… I’m starting to think my luck (such as it was) has deserted me entirely.
The only plus side to this predicament is that fact that I’m not alone in this.
Many of my fishing mates have also had zero-catch fishing trips in the last two months.
I have ventured north to Mahaka three times, Aropaoanui, and Ocean beach, plus all the usual haunts locally but the sea seems to be empty.
The only fun we’ve had was a couple of small eagle rays one afternoon at Aropaoanui. Both were released.
The fishing can only get better, it would be damn hard to get any worse.
