Bill Naish of the Mangawhai Builder caught a class 32-kilos fish in mid-water. In a recent trip, he experienced big tides and 20-25 knot winds, and was nearly a mile from shore with each drift. Hapuka and bass are the most common species caught, and some decent kingfish are caught, as well.

Low profile, contemporary home
For a low-profile contemporary home, look no further than the Black House project, which is a three-bedroom home by Dream Planning. The brief for the design was to create an efficient, high-performing home that was inspired by container homes. The result is a low-profile contemporary home that is open-plan and focuses on capturing views. The home is constructed from Nu Wall aluminium vertical weatherboards and cavity stack bond block walls. The roof line is gently angled to divert prevailing winds.
This architectural home sits in a gated community and features two main structures, multiple decks and stunning views of the coastline. The owners were personally involved in the building process, and even included their son in the project. They had previously lived in an apartment in the city and wanted a contemporary home with a low profile, cantilevered roof and organic landscaping curves.
They chose a modern design that will fit in with their lifestyle and their budget. Their dream home includes an outdoor shower, a garage with space for storage, a garden shed and a carport. They also chose an external door for the laundry.
