What the fuss is about!

Only whitebaiting can provide the unique thrill of hunting, fishing with a kinda Tai Chi attitude. Your first attempt at scooping up the white gold will get you hooked. You will be seeing the little translucent wrigglers in your dreams. You will be talking white bait stories within days. And suddenly you are an expert with a yarn to spin! And even though your bucket of a few kg’s is not enough to pay the last mortgage payment that is due, your attitude becomes one of ‘She’ll be right mate, I catch enough tomorrow morning to pay the bugger’s. Addictive you ask? Damn right. Rewarding? Not always by way of the kg, but always by the fun, yarns and laughs you have with the good buggers on the coast, especially at Little Wanganui!
