Glad you enjoyed mark. The fishing in Auckland then should have been fairly awesome if you got a chance?!
It's a bit shakier and colder down south so we have to search a bit more for those warmer fish (snapper, trevelly, gurnard) but on the other hand blue cod's good eating.
Will defs keep you all posted on next few trips, hoping to hit up kaikoura (whales and dolphins) and also the abel tasman (my pics from when I last kayaked it).
For now I'll just have to enjoy the Rugby world cup in my back yard eh
