The weather’s getting a bit cooler, but the fishing’s still going well.
We had to have a look around the Astrolabe seeing it’s finally open. We made a couple of stops on the way and got a selection of snapper, trevally and tarakihi.
A good start. The Lab was ok, but nothing exceptional.
Did a similar run on Saturday, with similar results, although the deeper water was slower. Quite strange conditions, strong surface current but slow fishing even though no apparent bottom current. We ended up off Motiti in 40/50m where it was quite good.
Sunday was more of the same but slower, and we ended up doing best inside Motiti.
A bonus was a striped marlin popping up beside us outside Motiti. Only the 2nd time I’ve seen one in that area.
