April has started well, continuing the good summer that we’ve had.
A couple of good bottom fishing trips midweek, with the tarakihi continuing to go well, combined with the calm seas made for some easy days.
Taking a tramping club to Mayor for the Easter weekend continued the laid back mode and we even picked up some skippies as well as a good selection around the island.
As usual with Mayor, the currents have a major effect on where the fish are being caught, with a tide change often seeing an area going from good to nothing happening in short order.
The snapper around Motiti have slowed since they showed up a fortnight ago, still there, but shorter feeding times. There are plenty of little ones around though, particularly in the under 30m areas.
