Copyright Lisa Sarsfield 2009I took the kids fishing (with the bait catcher) but the weather turned on us and the wind made the water far to choppu for the little bait catcher! After about half and hour we conceeded that it wasn’t the right conditions for it and went for a walk over the Matapihi Brige!

These were taken from the wharf at the Strand in Tauranga. Just a few hundred meters down the road and across are the bars and resturants of the city… the wharf is a great fishing spot and people like to jump off it to swim as well. I was there for fishing not jumping:) We were catching and releasing with a bait catcher and bread, the haul included 2 shrimp, 4 yellow spotties and 4 brown fish as yet unidentified! These birds now it’s a good spot to score a free feed too!
