On 31 March Sylvia and I were up early for a long drive to Mangonui in the far north. We used to live in the area so could get in a visit or two around the compass swings. First up was the Taitimu which is owned by Chris Low of Picses Charters. I had the pleasure of successfully going out fishing with him just before Christmas while camping next door to where we used to live. Tucker included fish and chips from the well known fish shop on the harbour in Mangonui.
