Run of the Kahawhai


The waters of Port Nelson were bubbling with Kahawhai early this morning and a handful of Nelsonians made the most of it.

Brother and sister, Finn and Lilli Wilkinson were woken up early by their dad who hauled them out of bed and handed them a rod each.

Now, Lilli says they’ve got 10 Kahawhai for Christmas dinner.

Fisherman Ray Inking also hit the jackpot, hauling up four Kahawhai in the short time we talked to him.
