Finn, 11

My top spot is Whakapirau. Because it is really cool for spending time on the hills and catching big fish. It is a great place for making memorize to stay with you forever. It is just magical. I caught my first big fish a 34 Cm snapper. And then a 43 kg king fish.

The flicker of a tail in the glistening water. The wind curved the waves, slapping against the boats. The smell of fish bait filled the air. Sitting down with the rod the waves gently tilt the rod. The line hidden from sight by its colour. The fish scales glisten in the sun. The warm breeze washes over my rod.
