Fishing off Kapiti Island, New Zealand, last week with my son, a brilliant day, calm seas, clear skies and the fish were being hauled in, especially this 14lb snapper! A whopper!

Nice catch! What beautiful waters, where is that? Was the fish lucky, was it released afterwards? ;)

Jim said...

The ones we release are undersized, but this big beauty is for cooking. Between Kapiti Island and the mainland is a designated Marine Reserve, where no fishing is allowed. This allows regeneration of the bio-system and as the fish population grows undisturbed there, the surrounding areas are repopulated. A balance between conservation and recreational fishing is achieved. I'd like to see more reserves set up all around our coastlines.

That's a big catch! Certainly something good for dinner! :)

Kapiti Island on a brilliant day, calm seas, clear skies... resembles paradise to me.

And man, the fish, you really hauled them in didn't you? This one looks bigger than 14lb. Some whopper!

WOW! That's a BIG fish! What kind is it? Mind you, I don't get to see many fish other than what is already prepackaged in the store:)
I'm sitting here thinking what I could do with that in my kitchen, haha:)
