2015 has started with some great, settled weather and the light N./N.E winds have been bringing in the warmer water along with the skippies and billfish, which have been mainly caught outside Mayor and the Penguin Shoals.

The bottom fishing remains unpredictable, with some good catches in both the deep and shallower water, but no consistency. We’ve had good days at the Pinns, Maketu and even the Middle Ground, followed next day by very slow fishing.

Mainly tarakihi being caught, with the odd legal snapper, a lot at present around the 28/29cm mark, a bit frustrating at times. The tarakihi have been very  good size generally, just a bit on the shy side.

Early days though.
