Wonderful Wanganui

An early start on a frosty morning paid dividends for Mike and I as we enjoyed another stunning day of food gathering.

Shoal snapper and Blue Cod were eager to leave their cold water environment, only to re-enter an even colder one, lol.

Being home by 11 am  allowed us to spend the warmest part of the day with other family members on this beautiful sunny Sunday.

That rekindled some old memories, I fished commercially out of NP in the early to mid 70s pair trawling and then triple trawling with the Seaway, Geneva May and the Esperence the Parker brothers and Willie Watts as skippers. We did a few lining trips out to the trenches for Puka.



Standing on the stern of the Geneva May 1972-73 with a good haul of snapper that required splitting several times.

Was never a fan of frozen fish Hairy, but have found these little shoal snapper fillets vaccum packed (no fresh water has touched them) are fantastic eating even months later. I find it impossible taste wise to tell that they have been frozen.
