Shark's Tooth

December 23, 2020

I decided to kick off the holidays with a crayfish catch. The weather wasn't great and the ocean was a bit rough. We weren't able to get out to Thoms Rock so we went to a spot much closer to land and more sheltered from Cook Strait.

Shark's Tooth is just south of Taputeranaga Island and significantly shallower than Thoms Rock. The ocean floor at the site is covered in seaweed for the most part. That definitely made the hunt more challenging and you typically couldn't just peer around and find crayfish. You had to wave the seaweed out of the wave which would occasionally alert the crayfish to your presence.

After a number of misses, I finally snagged a couple of crayfish and a crab. One of the crayfish had to go back and I was left with 1 crayfish and 1 crab.
