As much snapper as tarakihi
10 May 2017
0 0

The fishing has been a bit slower in the last week, but still very good. We’re catching as much snapper as tarakihi, which makes a change. And still picking up  skippies, more now than  earlier in the season,

We had a weekend overnighter and that went well, likewise, a lot more snapper around Mayor in addition to the tarakihi and trevally.

Our drift fishing was slower, but there is still a lot of current making things harder. We got some small bluenose, and some of the smallest gemfish we’ve seen, so called in at the Penguins for the first time in ages, and after a couple of misses, ended up with a top up of good snapper and a couple more big trevs.

Beautiful conditions the whole time, excellent.
