We went outside Motiti on Wednesday, Town Pt had been ok but fairly ordinary, so we tried the deeper water again. Not a bad day, mainly tarakihi and a few snapper and good calm conditions.
Saturday we had Cheers fishing club, a fair load on fishers, and thought Town Pt's shallower water would be the good option.
Which it was, plenty of fish, excellent conditions and a good bunch of people enjoying the day.
So Sunday was a no brainer, back to Town Pt. Conditions were perfect, even better than Saturday, except, no fish. We did all the spots we'd been pulling them up the day before for nothing. Well, 3 tarakihi and a couple of scorpionfish.
Steamed outside Motiti, still nothing until about 1.30, then they punched the clock and went hard until we left, filling the chilli bins with plenty of fish.
It's an interesting game, this, and a good demonstration of just how fickle fish can be.
