A lot of snapper caught
29 August 2017

We had to cancel last Sunday’s trip due to bad weather but managed to get Monday in with most of the people booked, so that was a bonus. Not a bad day either and good fishing with a lot of snapper caught. Wednesday was similar conditions but mostly tarakihi with a couple of snapper.
 
The bigger tides we get in winter around the new moon seem to have more influence on the fishing, often more inconsistent, bigger currents, generally a bit harder. Snapper are less affected by current, often it’s what brings them to the boat, conversely, it’s why they can be so fickle. There one minute, bit of a wind or tide shift, gone the next.
 
We got Saturday in, ok steady fishing, tarakihi and pink maomao mainly, but the N/N.E front coming through killed the next few days.
