Monday Fish 8, Wairau Bar

Took home fairly nice kahawai on Monday. They seemed hard to catch, though - quite a few strikes, but they got off more times than they stayed hooked.

The Friday before was better, with a couple of nice fat kahawai. Also a small one that I returned, and a little guy that got foul-hooked by Jim using a lure bigger than the fish.
