Kawakawa gone up in smoke

Strong south westerly winds and gusts reaching 35 knots at times created some interesting paddling to be had on my sea kayak. Small work ups everywhere. I really enjoy watching Gannets dive. They are the best divers in the whole planet. Amazing that they can dive from the height of 30 meters reaching the speed of 120 km/h as they strike the water surface. Plenty of kahawai caught and some of them put on a nice fight. Snappers were shy but enough caught for dinner.

Time to try my new fish smoker from 1-Day sales. Pretty cheap material of construction but the design is pretty cool and the flames kept going for 4 hours without the need to top up. Did the job well but next time would keep it little longer to dry the fish little more.
