Another week of mainly good fishing.
We’re still working the area outside Motiti for the bottom fishing as it’s been the most consistent. Thursday we only shifted twice all day, with mainly tarakihi ticking along all day. Friday we went back to the same spots and had a lot slower day. Tried other , shallower areas but no go anywhere.
Our overnighter saw a few snapper caught around Mayor that evening with good tarakihi fishing, minus a few to the tax collector[a 2.5m Mako].
We also got 6 albacore and had a marlin jumping by the boat so a double bonus. The drift fishing was slow, just a few bluenose.
Sat/Sun was similar, with a nice hapuku, bass and small gemfish caught before the N.E. slop got the better of some of the crew and we headed home.
