Eat Local; sea catch

Us guys wanted to get in the water with our spear guns today, and took a blind stab at this beach.  Molly didn't think they'd even be able to get in the water--the waves are usually fierce and crashing.  They got lucky--we had never seen the ocean here this calm before, but I guess the magic condition was an easterly, or northeasterly wind.  The beach remains unnamed so this popular walking spot doesn't become too popular with the fishermen.

not going hungry here, a decent catch of Butterfish, Blue Moki and a limit of Paua.

I didnt catch this crayfish(like a lobster with no large claws), Rosman who went with me grabbed them. I am still learning how to find them. this guy was a baheamoth, weighing in at 6.5lbs.
