We have left Houhora Harbour today and slowly make our way south towards Whangarei again.

On anchor we often try to catch a fish but haven´ t been successful so far. Today we stop over a rocky bottom and fish for two hours. All our baits (shells or soft bait) are nibbled away, but no fish on the hook.

Continuing to our anchorage we finally have a bite on our towing line: a Blue Mackerel, our first own catch in New Zealand. In the evening it is smoking on our BBQ grill in the Maitai Bay.
