Another week of good weather right up until the weekend, when things degenerated and another 3 trips had to be canned. It’s all part of the game, but it doesn’t stop it from being a bit frustrating.
Especially Southeasterlies, it can look quite settled on shore, but once you get a mile or two out the breeze comes up and with it the short, steep and shapeless chop.
Still, we got Wednesday in, and it was another perfect winter’s day, with more good catches of mainly tarakihi and snapper.
We also saw some orca, not a common sight in the winter, they’re normally around in the summer months, often targeting the stingrays in the harbour.
There’s also been lots of seagulls and terns feeding a few miles out, not sure what on, possibly whitebait, although it seems a bit early for them. Time will tell I guess.
