A day out on the Merc’s with the boss.
November 29th, 2011

Piggybacking on a crayboat out of Whitianga Harbor. Supposedly re-baiting the cray pots is when the big bull tai snappers show up.

They weren’t kidding. The boss doing his husbandry duty and releasing him back to the females.

This guy did a valiant job of getting back into the water. Those are the risks of thieving those tasty crays right out of their pots, a favorite of the octopus.

Not a bad catch for the day.
