Had a great first day of fishing. My first catch measured 47 cm and weight 1.65 kg (3.6 pounds ?).

Going back out tomorrow for a few hours.

I have been fishing since I was a kid (just not in NZ). I'd say I was hooked a long time ago  Smiley

Nice fish,try a bit of evening fishing around the river mouths,rivers flowing into the lakes just on dark.Your catch weight should increase a pound or two. Wink
