Trout Fishing 29 May 2009

Went out fishing off Hamurana yesterday afternoon. On the water about 3:30, 1 other boat out. From the Internet the wind at the airport was N, but once I was on the water was SW.

I have set up an 'extra' steering arm on my outboard, runs parallel to the tiller arm, but under the seat and just touches the floor. It had a nylon skin on the front and this allows me to make any corrections in the steering with my foot whilst I am fishing and keeps my hand free for rigging line, etc.

On to the fishing, I made a couple of runs out towards the island and back in towards the stream using a traffic light. There seem to be a bit of loose weed about that I kept finding, no touches at all.

Changed to a brownie lure and picked up a small trout on a beat back into towards the stream. Released it and heading back to home and a warm fire.

Will try again this weekend if the weather is OK.
cheers
