Today was.... p good in that while the whole boat was puking their guts out, I was freezing my butt off at the bow with my mum. But we rode beside dolphins sooooooo...... swipe to the last vid to see 'em 🐬
Recently it has been shown that the Brdye's whales in the Hauraki Hulf are fussy eaters. It turns out when it comes to zooplankton, they prefer krill-like shrimp, gelatinous salps and copepods. #whales#whalewatching
The Ocean is where I belong, honestly the life and structures in the underwater world is like nothing else. It is worth protecting for future generations to come🌊🌊🌊. . 📷: @wednesday_davis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ocean#oceanman
#snapper were on fire today. Everything we threw at them just got inhaled. I must admit we basically fished all of the Oceanangler range. We fished from 5mtrs - 35mtrs, over sand with plastics to microjigs on the deeper reefs, jitterbugs for the sign we saw on the finder, from sun up to sun down, from hightide to hightide. Learnt heaps. Be prepared to adapt your fishing to the conditions as they change through the day. Fish shallow to release snapper and keep the ones you catch from deep. GOOD Friday🤙🏽 #instagramfishing ...
I enjoy fishing in average conditions. Fish seem to bite more aggressively. We put all our tackle to the test today. 5/8oz green glow lightbulb #jighead with the #berkleygulp glow 5” lime tiger (my fav btw), bruised banana zmans.
Zoom. Takahikare glide along just above the waves, just enough that they can coast on the air glancing over the crests. When they spot a bite of food, they plop down on the water almost like they’re walking on it, hence “petrel,” thought to be in reference to the Christian Peter. These buddies are all around the Hauraki Gulf, and are so entertaining to watch as they bounce around! . . Nikon D3400 with Tamron 150-600mm. . . . . #wildlife#conservation ...
There is so many awesome sea-birds and marine mammals in the Hauraki gulf! From the first pic we have the Pied Shag one of my favourite sea birds. The second is a Pied shear-Water, birds that fly incredibly close so they can smell plankton that fish may be feeding on. And of course we saw many common dolphins! My friend @the_axe_will_reveal took these photos with his much better camera, many thanks!
