Fishing Report:
This was the biggest Red Snapper landed that day. With it I hit the triple crown. I caught the first, the most and the biggest fish. Since I was getting on a plane in a few hours I made a lot of instant friends by giving my catch to those who hadn't caught their limit. Except for this one. I took him back to the hotel where they had kept my bags all day and donated him to the head concierge. They had a fine fresh fish dinner that night.

Fishing Report:
This was my first Kahawai. I caught it from a Redboats Charter out of Auckland New Zealand. Locally referred to as an Australian Salmon, these guys put up a great fight with lots of lateral and vertical action. He was too small so I had to throw him back.

Fishing Report:
Back in 2010 I had a day to kill in Auckland, New Zealand. The Hotel concierge recommended Redboats fishing charters. They were inexpensive and had us on fish all day. We were after Red Snapper and Kahawai. This keeper was the first in the boat.
