Beautiful day, flat calm, no current and very good reef fishing

Well, after a lot of bad weather, mainly on the weekends, of course, we finally got a Saturday in. It was a beautiful day, flat calm, no current and very good reef fishing.

We started off in the deeper water, 80 to 85m and went  well on snapper and tarakihi, even got a legal kingy, but it slowed down around midday so we tried in a bit closer and did even better with the tarakihi, with the odd  legal snapper among them.

I mentioned getting a barracuda full of krill a few weeks ago, and we saw a big clump of them[krill] drift by while we were anchored. Given that they’re normally only seen in the warmest months of summer, very unusual indeed.

 I see the scientists now reckon there’s a mini ice age on the way in the next 15 years, I wonder what effect that’ll have on global warming
