Deeper water with good consistent results
19 May 2014

Another week of great weather, warm water and good fishing.

On the “if it’s not broken don’t fix it” premise, we’ve been continuing to work the deeper water with good consistent results.

We’ve been getting good mixes of snapper and tarakihi, with a few trevally and kingies[mainly undersize] as well.

One consistent quirk has been we’ve had to be right on the mark, miss the fish by 20m and they will not come, reanchoring is the only option, which can be frustrating with frequent small wind shifts moving the boat.

A breezy SW saw water temps drop a bit, 23* early in the week, around 20* on Sunday, but we’re still getting a few skippies every day, and a marlin was caught over the weekend, so we’re hoping that the warm currents continue to bring the fish into the shallower water.
