Paekakariki Beach Fishing Catch
Yesterday I went for a walk along the Paekakariki Beach and I came across a local Fisherman.
This machine called a Kontiki is sent 2Km out to sea powered by a motor on the beach and it hauls 25 lines out behind it. It is left out there for 1 hour and then pulled back in, hopefully with some fish on the lines.
Needless to say I was thrilled to be there to watch what happens from the beginning to the end process. The results for the day were very pleasing, the fisherman catching himself enough food to take home to his family.
